This year, the atmosphere and vibe were good, very positive. The new décor and green decorations received a lot of praise. And the Road Show also proved to be a valuable new addition to the trade fair. The 25 returning novelties that were presented this year, were accompanied by ballots. In line with the theme of the trade fair, 'My Favourite Plant!' it was possible to vote for a favourite. The 'winner' of this election was the Hibiscus syriacus 'JWNWOOD4' (Pink Chiffon). The Astilbe Chocolate Cherry (MIGHTY) came in second place, and the Caryopteris clandonensis 'White Surprise' and the Hydrangea paniculata 'Jane' (Little Lime) shared the third place. For now, the details about the Road Show can be seen on the website.
Visitors also chose their favourite during preregistration for free access. The Acer was one of the favourites that was mentioned most often, as where the Albizia, Amelancher. Other names that were picked often were the Hydrangea, Buxus, Cornus, Fagus, Liquidambar, Magnolia, Prunus, and Quercus.
