Jean-Luc Garnier, the director in charge of the exhibition for several years, declares, "Our goal has always been to allow professionals to discover in preview all the innovations in the garden sector, which will be available to the general public in a year."
The anniversary edition of the exhibition promises to be more captivating than ever, with a diverse range of products, impactful innovations, and unique networking opportunities.

The 20th edition of the Garden Trends Collection Days will open under a perspective more than ever anchored in the present: that of well-being and virtuous gardening. Gardening has long been recognized for its positive impact on morale, serving as an antidote to gloomy days. It is a vector of social connection, education, and personal reconstruction: leisure gardens, decorative gardens, and food gardens driven by ecological conviction and economic considerations. This edition perfectly reflects these dimensions by highlighting the sociological, environmental, and economic aspects that have shaped the gardening and DIY industry.
The 20th edition of the Garden Trends Collection Days celebrates gardening as a means of cultivating personal well -being while respecting the environment amidst climate change. It emphasizes major industry developments and provides an exploration space for professionals aiming to stay at the forefront of virtuous trends and practices. It's a unique opportunity to discover how gardening can be both a source of well-being and a responsible act.
