The HTA are working with Panoramic Partner Striking Places to put together a virtual tour of the main show feature areas including the New Plant Area, HTA Village and Hortipak Hub amongst others.
As well as showcasing the features it also gives you an idea of what could be achieved in your own garden centres or glasshouses to showcase your business to clients and potential customers.
Striking Places will also be at the show for the duration where you will be able to see the virtual tour before it’s uploaded following the event and you will also have the chance to have lots of fun with Google Cardboard!

Planting the Seed of Inspiration
Whilst the focus at the HTA National Plant Show is clearly on plants themselves it also provides a fantastic platform for exhibitors to demonstrate innovative and inspiring displays that ultimately lead to increased plant sales.
The Planting the Seed Award – Visitor Vote, highlights those displays that capture the imagination, provide clear information and attract attention. They also offer a great example to our visitors of how the plants can look if you were to create a display in store. These displays plant the seed of inspiration.
This year visitors will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite stand display, the stand that has given them the most food for thought and great ideas to leave the show with.
The winners of the judged Best Plant Display award 2015 were Wyevale with their ‘bringing the inside out’ concept which featured a fully planted living room, hotly followed by Key Essentials and Parkers Nurseries with their simple but effective approaches in merchandising.
Which display really inspired you? This year we want to find out your favourite displays. Look out for iPad voting stations on the HTA Village and on the Garden Connect stand 46 at the show.
The HTA National Plant Show takes place on 21 and 22 June at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire. For more information and to register in advance please visit www.nationalplantshow.co.uk
