Plantarium has two showcases, namely: the Novelty showcase and the press award. The showcases are judged by competent juries, assembled by the RBHS (Royal Boskoop Horticultural Society) and the international trade press.


Four awards are presented at Plantarium, namely:
a) the best novelty award
b) the press award



New plants are plants which are introduced at Plantarium, having been bred by companies both at home and abroad, and are judged by the Royal Boskoop Horticultural Society.

The presentation of new plants has attracted a great deal of interest from national and international trade visitors and trade press for many years.

Have you developed a new plant? If so, the Plantarium novelty awards provide the perfect opportunity to draw attention to your product.

You can register for Novelties Plantarium 2020. (possible from 1 April 2020)


Press award (only for exhibitors)

The press award is awarded by a jury of trade journalists from the Netherlands and abroad.

This award attracts a great deal of international publicity.

The press award is presented in two categories: Garden plants (in the broad sense, i.e. suitable for the garden, terrace and balcony) and Concepts.

Do you have a new or uniquely presented plant which clearly stands out from other products because of its added value and is widely available?

Or do you have a concept which you are sure will be popular with the retail trade and consumers?

If so, make sure you enter your product for the Press Award at Plantarium.
