The winners were chosen among candidates from several European countries (Germany, Denmark, Spain, France, Greece, United Kingdom and Sweden)

The results of this award demonstrate – if proof was needed – that beyond the preservation of heirloom varieties, the discovery and selection of new non-hybrid varieties is within the reach of every professional or amateur gardener, freely, for the beauty and the pleasure, or for the need to adapt the plants to varied places and climates … as our ancestors have always done without the help of genetic engineering !!
