This year’s slogan "BENEFITS COLLECTION”
6-7-8 September 2018
The motto of this year's exhibition can be read in two ways - first of all, it speaks to the benefits of having a garden and close contact with greenery and flowers, but it also refers to the notion of collecting plants, a passion of many garden owners.

The list of green benefits is long and each of us ranks it differently. So what benefits are important for you?
Beauty and variability - the beauty of plants, the complexity and variability of nature, which we can observe closely and discover in flowers, the texture of leaves, their colors or smell.
Health and relaxation - the use of healthy vegetables, fruits or herbs that we cultivate without using chemicals. We have growing appreciation for the therapeutic role of contact with plants - outdoor movement, relaxation among greenery and the fact that it makes us stop, breathe and relieve stress. A garden or flower terrace is a great place for family and social meetings.
Positive emotions - the personal impact on the shape of the garden and the sense of agency - that a plant take root, grows and produces fruits. The garden is also a passion and a way to spend free time. Even the collection of plants with interesting varieties is a joy for many of us.
Knowledge – the observation of plants develops and teaches hierarchy, order, humbleness and understanding of processes and dependencies in nature. Contact with nature has a great impact on the development of memory and sense of observation in children.
Benefits of greenery in the city – urban residents appreciate the proximity and accessibility of greenery. This is a key criteria when choosing the location of an apartment or house. There is growing awareness of the importance of plants in improving the quality of the urban climate – namely functions to filter, clean and protect against the wind or provide cooling on hot days.
Economic benefits - a nice view comes with a premium. Houses with a garden, apartments in developments with well arranged greenery and a park view command higher prices – up to 15% on average.
