A Greek garden for Greece?
“Between 25th April and 12th October 2003, Greece was one of 24 countries participating in the International Horticultural Exhibition (IGA) in Rostock, Germany. The main objective of the Greek participation was to produce a traditional Aegean Garden. This Aegean Garden was such a success that it won the third place and received praise from its visitors.”
