Buoyant Atmosphere at Stoneleigh!
On the back of a positive spring season, there was a buoyant atmosphere at this year’s HTA National Plant Show, sponsored by Hortipak.
The show saw increased numbers of exhibitors and visitors alike, in what was its 10th year. This year supplier exhibitors moved to Hall 1 adjacent to the nursery hall providing visitors with the opportunity to see and buy all they need to grow and sell plants under one roof.
