NIHGC President, Dr Charles Nelson FLS - Award Winner

Posted: 4/12/2012

The members of the Northern Ireland Heritage Gardens Committee wish to congratulate their President Dr Charles Nelson FLS - on being Winner of 2012 Garden Media Guild Awards in the category of the Reference Book of the Year 2012.

The judges' comments:

'Given the vast library of horticultural reference works, it is an almighty challenge to produce one that adds something new while remaining accessible and yet attractive to handle and read. The winner stood out as indisputably important in covering a group of plants that are much loved by gardeners, whilst being an authoritative work of reference that will maintain its relevance for years to come.'
