At the trend-watching exhibition Spoga Gafa garden-centre suppliers talked about the latest trends:
Ter Steege puts the pot-plant combination at centre stage and uses greenery a lot: ‘greenery’ is trendy and ‘pots are increasingly becoming an item’. “It is both trendy and healthy. There is a lot of interest in the air-purifying function of plants.”
Dijk Natural Collections is responding to the desire for sustainability. They see natural materials playing a major role, such as sustainably sourced teak, scaffolding wood and rope.
Esschert design has developed a product line for small households and, instead of traditional garden furniture, is offering multifunctional furniture for small outside spaces.
Thermoflor is signalling that an increasing number of customers want to shop in greater comfort in garden centres and is offering a growing range of colour schemes and materials for coverings for retail areas ☺ .
