A November weekend of horticultural events

Crowd at SGD Awards

Society of Garden Designers Awards 2012

Difficult as it is to imagine what on earth the world of horticulture can be getting up to in November, the weekend has been a busy one. For those lucky enough to triumph at the Society of Garden Designers Awards 2012, a massive well done from all at Alitex. To even reach the short list is surely an enormous achievement in such an internationally competitive field. Alitex sponsored the John Brookes award which honoured the lifetime achievement in garden design of Charles Jencks. We were very proud to be there on the evening to share in the pleasure of the horticultural world whilst friends and colleagues were singled out for praise and applauded. 

Thank you to all those involved and to our guests for joining us.

Society of Garden Designers Autumn Conference 2012

The day after the night before on the 10th, the Society of Garden Designers Autumn Conference took place at Imperial College attracting a sell out audience. Alitex were delighted to meet friends old and new and look forward to future conversations and projects. A very interesting and worthwhile event which both Chris Sawyer and John Lawson enjoyed. Thanks to everyone involved.

Alitex November Open Morning

At the same time down at our head quarters on the South Downs near Petersfield, Alitex hosted an open morning which invited clients and interested parties to come along and have a behind the scenes peek at the Alitex process. Guests were given a tour of the factory, the structures at our show site and a design demonstration over bacon butties and hot drinks. It was a well attended event and the feedback has been positive; we look forward to welcoming anyone who missed the Autumn event in the new year on Saturday January 26th, 9.30-12.30 for a “re-match”. Please call us to book.
