The Elmia Garden Award 2019

Extensive mass media interest, broad exposure during Elmia Garden and added momentum in marketing and PR – the products nominated for the Elmia Garden Award truly enjoy a flying start on the market!

The Elmia Garden Award is a distinction that carries weight and status in the industry. An electrically powered wheelbarrow, an ergonomic tedder, a nesting box with a web camera, a practical growing bench, a lamp with lighting for plants and most recently 100 % recycled potting soil– over the years all kinds of great, intelligent solutions have been presented when the winner of the Elmia Garden Award is announced.

The aim of the Elmia Garden Award is to showcase the creativity and product development taking place in the garden industry. At Elmia Garden we are giving companies of all sizes an opportunity to display their entries to a wider audience ahead of the final vote in spring. There is great interest from the media – the products attract a lot of attention – so don’t miss the chance to give your product launch an extra boost!

Jury and rules

The products are assessed by a jury comprising such recognised figures as Simon Irvine, garden designer at Läckö Castle, Christina Säll of Hemträdgården gardening magazine and creative director Magnus Åström. The nominated products will be on display in an exhibiton during Elmia Garden 2018. The eventual winner will be announced at a press conference in the spring of 2019, just in time for the start of the gardening season. All the major Swedish trade magazines, along with many daily papers, have written about previous winners of the award.

Winner of the Elmia Garden Award 2017

The 2017 Elmia Garden Award for the garden product of the year has gone to Design Björn Lidbrandt for his planting ring made of concrete. The product offers an effective solution to protect trees and bushes when robot lawnmowers cut the grass. The ring also becomes a stylish feature in the garden.

“The award is very important to me,” Lidbrandt says. “It is a confirmation that this is a good product and I hope it will also bring benefits thanks to the media attention the product is now receiving.”
