The Horticultural Exhibitors Association
The HEA supports horticultural exhibitors, both those
selling plants and those selling horticultural sundry products. The
organisation works with event organisers and show teams to ensure exhibitors
are represented as a group rather than individually and works hard to
support members with a range of services.

The UK horticultural world needs supporting in the same
way as farmers and the HEA has created two schemes with that aim in

From My Nursery to Your Garden
Mickfield Hostas is pleased to support, and be
a member of, the 'from My Nursery to Your Garden' scheme. Consider
this logo in the same way as you regard the little red tractor
symbol found on supermarket products, indicating the produce was
sourced from UK farmers. When a customer sees the 'from My Nursery
to Your Garden' logo they can be assured that at least 75% of
plants for sale from members have been grown in the UK.
nurseries grow and sell their own produce direct to the public.
Therefore you know how and where that plant has been grown and
can speak to the grower direct to discover what it requires
to continue to flourish.
Additionally, selling direct to the public
cuts out unnecessary transport and supports the economy in each
nursery's local area.
