A tribute

to gardening

In June 2017, Valbyparken in Copenhagen was converted

into concentrated garden joy. Everybody involved in the

event were interested in creating a wonderful garden

party. Soon we were asked: “When will you repeat the success?”

It was never really a question of whether we would

do it again, merely a question of when.

The answer is here, and we are proud to present:

Haveselskabets Cph Garden

20th to 23rd of June 2019

Cph Garden is an exhibition created to pay tribute to

life in and around the garden and to share and cultivate

garden joy.

And you are invited to be part of it again, because Cph

Garden cannot exist without the wonderful stands, the

interesting presentations, the fascinating show gardens,

the diverse inspirational gardens – and the good partners.

If you want to join us again, we will once more be able to

provide all our visitors with a very special experience.

We have asked several visitors, exhibitors, volunteers, partners, designers and lecturers from

Cph Garden 2017 to give us their favourable and critical comments, and we have evaluated

their responses to learn what to repeat and what to improve. One modification is that Cph Garden

2019 will run for only four days from 10am to 6pm. Another modification is the ticket price

which will be DKK 200 per day (DKK 125 for members of Haveselskabet) and a special ticket for

all four days.

The concept is basically the same as in 2017: a garden

show made for garden enthusiasts by garden enthusiasts.


We sincerely hope you will join us again – or

maybe join us for the first time. You will find

much more about our thoughts on Cph Garden

2019 in this brochure, and please feel free

to contact us for any and all questions. We

are always open for new ideas.

Yours sincerely

Charlotte Garby

CEO, Haveselskabet




show gardens



The eight show gardens are between 50 and 80 square

metres. They are presented by a commercial partner and

are designed and build in a co-operation between a garden

designer and a landscape gardener. The show gardens are

rewarded with gold, silver and bronze, and one show garden

will become “Best in Show”.

12-16 Inspirational gardens. The inspirational gardens are

a chance for selected partners to present their brand and

products, and the guests at Cph Garden 2019 elect the

most beautiful garden. In 2017, the winner was Fællesskabshaven

(The Joint Garden) designed and created by

Champost and TagTomat. Together, they had made an

unorthodox urban garden.

Garden adventures

Aa a visitor, you can already look forward to a four day long garden

party. The ticket price is DKK 200, DKK 125 for members of Haveselskabet.

The ticket will give access to a flood of garden treats – eight

show gardens and their designers, twelve to sixteen smaller inspirational

gardens and an elaborate program of presentations and workshops. You have

to plan your days in advance if you want to experience everything. We will

provide a large ”hotel” for plants and other goods bought at the exhibition,

and we will help with transporting larger goods and plants .



We have planned an elaborate program for all four days - including exciting presentations

and interesting workshops. In 2017, visitors could experience courses

on fermentation, presentations on tomato growing, workshops on compost,

fertilizers, machines, wickerwork, beautiful garden bouquets and much more.

We have invited a number of chosen

Danish and foreign companies to

present and sell their products. The

stands will be evaluated and rewarded

by both professionals and visitors.

Meet our experts

Specialist societies

Show scene

Come and meet our many experts on

roses, plant diseases, soil, compost

and much more. And meet our landscape

architects who will give good

advice and directions for designing

your garden.

I 2017, Hella Joof from the Danish

TV-programme Hellas Garden and

Charles Dowding from Britain visited

Cph Garden. Charles Dowding talked

about his “no dig” principle in the

kitchen garden. The show scene of

2019 will also present both Danish and

foreign names.

Various garden-related specialist societies

and small special nurseries will join us

to talk about their passions and fields of

interest. In 2017, visitors at Cph Garden

had the opportunity to meet Praktisk

Økologi, Frøsamlerne, Kaktusklubben

and many more.

very easy to establish a contact with

“We get the opportunity to tell

about our products, what we can

do and tell our story. To me it’s

important to look people in the eye

and talk to them. A lot of people

don’t know that there are many

kinds of soil, and they don’t know

either, that plants need a good

That’s the talk I want with people.”

What’s in it for you as a company?

“We get the opportunity to show what

we can do: at our nursery, we produce

our own plants, and we employ a lot

of trained gardeners, so we’re able to

help our customers. We are also very

satisfied with our sales here. It’s hard

to predict how many plants people

want, but if you take a look around the

exhibition, it looks like the visitors are

keen to buy. I can only say, that we’ll

be there at the next Cph Garden.”

The visitors are 100 per cent

interested in gardening, so there’s

I’m really proud to be part

of it”.

“I’m extremely excited. I’m used to attending

garden exhibitions in Britain,

and this is totally wicked! I’ve even

met a British visitor here who said

that the standards here are at least as

high as on the British garden exhibitions.

mine – it’s the impression of many of

the visitors I meet here. All you need

crossed and wish that Denmark

really gets this. I’ll do what I can to

make this event a success.”

What’s in it for you as a company?

“I’ve brought willow sculptures and

most of them are sold. We have a

turnover, and that’s nice. Cph Garden

is a place for us to show what we do

for a living and present our products

on the high level we wish to. We

simply havn’t had that opportunity

in Denmark before. Of course, there

are loads of lifestyle exhibitions, but

it’s not the same. This is an exhibition

dedicated to garden enthusiasts, and

Cph Garden could become a leading

event in the future.”

Heinrich Braun, owner of Baugaarden

Living Art. Baugaarden Living Art had

a stand, and Heinrich gave talks on

wickerwork and garden design.

I would call this a

festival for garden nerds.

“The atmosphere has been

very positive. I feel, that all the

people from the garden trade,

who are here, love the initiative.

I would call it a festival

for garden nerds with a cool

event programme, where you

can meet people you know, or

whose books you have read. A

place where garden enthusiasts

can be true nerds.”

sold some of our show glasshouses,

The visitors at the exhibition will choose the best inspirational

garden. Partners must be related to the garden industry.

There will be areas for tent stands, areas for invited

participants (for example special societies), a tent

Gold, silver and stars for the stands

A selected trade jury will assess the stands and select a

gold and a silver medalist. Furthermore, the stands will be

given zero to five stars.

*Resultat fra undersøgelse via email til gæster, udstillere og frivillige.

We’ve asked exhibitors, visitors, speakers, volunteers, partners and

designers about their experience at Cph Garden 2017. 100 per cent

of the exhibitors would recommend others to participate, and that

makes us very proud. So does the fact that 67 per cent of the visitors said that

Cph Garden fulfilled their expectations to a very high degree.

It was a very good festival! I sold more than I’d

expected, and because of the busyness, I hardly left

my tent to see some of all the exciting things that were

going on. But I will be there again the next time! So pat

your own backs – I think you are cool!

An anonymous exhibitor said

When exhibitors are happy, the organizers are happy. We have taken in the

favourable and critical comments and are ready to take even better care of

the exhibitors and partners (and visitors?) in 2019. Haveselskabet can only

carry through this arrangement if the garden trade and the many volunteeres,

who made our event in Valbyparken work, will support us in having

a garden party. Fortunately, 88 per cent of the volunteers want to be part

of Cph Garden 2019, so we promise you to repeat the 2017 success of free

coffee and bread for breakfast for all exhibitors. Furthermore, we will

establish a closed eating area for exhibitors and employees, and we are

working on improving the logistics.

Inspirations from

Cph Garden 2017

We embrace good

ideas for partnerships

and other initiatives.

Tina Thorsby from Havens Kunst (Art of the Garden) has the sales agency

of Haddonstone’s beautiful garden ornaments, and together they had created

a fine inspirational garden named De 4 elementer (The four elements).

The adventure park Universe from Southern Jutland was partner of the

show garden Den blomstrende have (The Flowering Garden) by Lise Bollhorn

og Erik Dal. From the autumn of 2018, the show garden can be seen in the

science park Universe at Als. The park is a large garden – and at the Cph

Garden Award 2017, Universe were lucky to be entitled ‘Garden Experience of

the year’.

Stig Lauritsen from Paradehuset – the Orangerie at Gisselfeld Castle – made the talk

Garden Gossip. He and Greg Corbett had created the inspirational garden Havens

catwalk (The Catwalk of the garden).

Cph Garden is introduced by haveselskabet, a national non-profit organisation

for garden owners, organisations and companies with an

interest in gardening.

Haveselskabet was established in 1830. Since 1900, we have published the

magazine ’Haven’ for members only. The magazine is well known for its high

professional level and for inspiring all types of garden owners.

Cph Garden will be carried through in co-operation with a team of external

experts within each their field. Haveselskabet knows about plants and gardens.

The experts know how to build a festival from scratch, how to organize

good food areas and toilets, how to sell stands, take care of press work and

many other things.

Cph Garden 2019 is presented in co-operation with a main partner

who will be mentioned in all marketing material, and as an active part

of our marketing of Cph Garden. A possible main partnership will be

agreed upon with Haveselskabet directly.
