Step 2: The buyers will be asked to complete an online survey assessing the grower on quality, consistency, customer service, presentation and ordering process.

Step 3: All information will be gathered and scores tallied to determine the top four finalists for the Flower Grower of The Year Award.

Step 4: SML will conduct site/farm inspections to the four finalists – judging on presentation, infrastructure, innovation, cleanliness, environmental management.
