Sleeker and lower furniture lines, urban gardening, re-use of plastic, masses of garden decoration lines and loads of BBQ's were the headlines at spoga+gafa in Koln.
Among the regular gardening products the GTN Xtra team found a clock that chimes with farmyard sounds on the hour at Eschart Designs, (Fallen Fruits in the UK) and a BBQ designed to be carried on a bicycle!
And in the Efsa concept store they were promoting "Beer from heaven" - a brew made from harvested rainwater in the Netherlands!
GTN Xtra's photo tour of the show is below. Watch out for more coverage in future issues of GTN Xtra and in the October issue of Garden Trade News.
