Buga 2015

We visited BUGA the German Federal garden show in mid September. A BUGA show is held every two years. Once every 10 years the show is also an
International Garden Show, latest Hamburg 2013. In 2015 the show was on five sites in the Havel region southwest of Berlin. Link to their website.
