China: Jiangsu Province wins AIPH ‘Best garden’ award
Commenting on the winner, former AIPH Marketing Committee Chairman and Chairman of the International Grand Jury, Mr Shinya Wada, said “Of all the 66 gardens that we judged at the Qingdao expo the Jiangsu Province garden stood out as the best. The garden included beautiful vistas and scenes that accurately represent the landscape and culture of the province. The plants were of very high quality, maintenance was excellent and the design was masterful. I would really like to congratulate the Forest Service of Jiangsu Province for their great achievement.”
AIPH President, Vic Krahn, presented the AIPH Award and trophy to Jiangsu Province during the Closing Ceremony of the expo where he also gave a speech praising the work of the Expo organising committee in delivering such an inspirational exhibition. He pointed out that Qingdao had set an example for the world in highlighting the important link between plants, nature and people so critical for the sustainability of society and the environment.
The AIPH approved (A2/B1 category) international exhibition closed on 25th October 2014 having been open for six months. Over four million visitors enjoyed the 241 hectares of gardens, pavilions and exhibitions. 109,000 trees and shrubs were planted on the site and there were over 800 species of plants displayed within the fabulous Botanical Pavilion. Over 2,500 exhibits were entered into the indoor flower competitions.
Commenting on the gardens AIPH Secretary General, Tim Briercliffe said “It was good to see both provincial and international participation. There were 37 international gardens from 35 different countries giving visitors an insight into different horticultural traditions.”
The expo also used innovative environmental and sustainable technologies, including air and soil source heat pumps, solar energy and efficient rainwater collection and re-use systems.
