The Annual Garden Day

By Katrine Damsgaard-Sørensen

The second Sunday in September, we had our annual campaign “The Garden Day” in garden centers all over the country.

The topic was “Roses and Perennials in the garden”. Which varieties are recommended when you are dreaming of combined rose and perennial beds? Which colors are good together, and how do you avoid the roses smothered by perennials?

Unfortunately the weather was rainy and cold that day, but still many families found their way to the local garden center.

Take a look here for campaign materials, posters and brochures.
