BEST MARKETING COMMUNICATIONS & SOCIAL MEDIA

Winner: Evergreen Garden Care - Miracle-Gro Mental Health Awareness Week 2021 We have not seen a mental health campaign like this in the garden care space before.

The judges said: “A well-executed campaign, which really brought the connection between gardening, mindfulness and wellbeing to the fore, as well as encouraging an open dialogue about mental health.” Finalists: STIHL - TV ad and supporting campaign, Westland Horticulture - Peckish Bird Campaign, Westland Horticulture - Specialist Digital Campaign
