What is the Garden Personality Trophy?

Every year in May, the Garden Personality Trophy is awarded. This trophy crowns someone who has made an exceptional merit in the garden and plant world. The trophy can only be won once by one person. We would call this a lifetime award in the Anglo-Saxon world.
