This year the APL Awards 2019 will be hosted by Jamie Butterworth who will be joined by Adam White talking about the adventures of his career so far.
Plantsman and horticulturist Jamie Butterworth wears many hats.

For the past year, Jamie has worked with the UK's leading natural paving specialist, London Stone to bridge the gap between hard and soft landscaping. Most recently, he set up his own soft landscaping company operating through the home counties and London.
