At the official opening of the exhibition Irina Bondarenko, Minister of Agriculture of Irkutsk Region noted that year by year the interest to event increases and the geography of participants extends.

 — Besides, the exhibition is useful: having visited last year the "Gardening and country-house. Garden design" exhibition, Sergey Eroshchenko, Governor of Irkutsk Region conducted roundtable discussion on problems of gardening and gave a task — to prepare the regional programme to support gardenings in 2015—2020. I think, by the end of the year the programme will be already presented to the general public. It has been already done a lot for gardeners: reconditioning of roads started, emergency ambulance began to arrive on calls. After all, people of retirement and pre-retirement age are engaged in a vegetable garden generally. Today they are heroes of the day. I congratulate them on the labor holiday and wish them good health and good weather — in the house and summer cottage.

Yuri Palkin, Chairman of public Council of the Unions of gardeners of Irkutsk Region, Doctor of Agricultural Science, and Professor joined congratulations also. The scientist with a long-term experience told how it is important for health of the nation to consume fresh and healthy vegetables, and gardeners cultivate such products on their few acres.

Sergey Eroshchenko, Irkutsk Region Governor arrived to Sibexpocentre to reward the winners of "The Best Family Estate" competition among families with many children of Irkutsk Region.
After the awarding ceremony Sergey Eroshchenko gladly talked to gardeners, estimated their labor feat and listened to all suggestions, offenses and manuals.

During the 14 years of its existence the "Gardening and country-house. Garden design" exhibition has a tradition: visitors do not go ungifted away. And it is unimportant what they will get for their vegetable garden, seeds of frost-resistant cucumbers or a strawberry bush, but it is necessary to carry away something from the exhibition.

Owners of country houses or cottages could estimate section of the exhibition dedicated to the cosiness and improvement of garden plots. Here furnaces, greenhouses, materials for improvement and decoration of garden and yard territories, as well as various equipment for water supply, watering and lighting were presented. Experts gave tips on design decoration of garden plots and farmlands, told about novelties of landscape gardening.

Florists pleased with riot of colours and original forms: nobody walked by huge white lilies, yellow tiny roses or scarlet dahlias. The exhibition visitors could get advice on growing of garden and indoor plants and also buy seeds or bulbs of flowers, bushes.

Diana Dragan, Executive Director of Flora-design Company, Irkutsk:

— The "Gardening and country-house. Garden design" exhibition is very popular with inhabitants of Irkutsk and inhabitants of the nearby cities. You know, maybe, such exhibitions can be held more often so that people could see and know: there are various directions to improve the quality of life. We acquainted visitors of the exhibition with vegetal walls and pictures. These constructions are fixed vertically to a surface or can independently stand in space. We are glad that visitors of the exhibition showed interest to our vegetal walls, and we hope that we found here new clients. I would also like to say that we participated in the exhibition for the first time and were pleasantly surprised by the friendly attitude of the staff of Sibexpocentre. Any issues were resolved quickly and easily. We would like to say 'thank you.'

 Dubovich, Chairman of Irkutsk club of gardeners-experimenters named after A. K. Tomson, Lidiya Samochko, Head of the section of berry bushes of Irkutsk club of gardeners-experimenters named after A. K. Tomson:

 — The club of gardeners-experimenters named after A. K. Tomson has been participating in the "Gardening and country-house. Garden design" exhibition throughout the years. Thanks to Sibexpocentre for the chance to show our achievements here all this time. Here are a lot of us — gardeners, all of us would not be located in other place, and people always glad to see us here. We come here to share our knowledge and experience with people, to tell our pastime colleagues to properly grow up vegetables, berries, bushes. How often to water, what fertilisers to use and many other things. Gardeners of the club have a wealth of experience, and throughout the year we give classes on sections. Gardeners who visit classes, of course, gain necessary knowledge. Many gardeners come especially to the exhibition to talk to colleagues, to buy seeds, but the most important — to receive answers to their questions. The exhibition is also important because everyone shares here all the gathered experience with pleasure, get acquainted here, and the purpose of our club is to inform as many gardeners as possible.

 — As summer draws to an end, we gather at the "Gardening and country-house. Garden design" exhibition in Sibexpocentre. We have such a tradition for a long time, and it is great that we have been coming here for so many years and visitors always glad to see our products. We also try to bring all the best for our gardeners: our visitors of the exhibition can buy seeds of tomatoes, peppers and onions specially bred and adapted to our conditions, to the climate of Irkutsk Region. The vegetables which have been grown up on the country site are not to be compared with purchased both in taste and useful substances' content. And health is more important! I think, according to the latest political events gardening will be developed even more strongly, and the age of the keen people will be down, that means that vegetables and berries on the plots of land will be grown up not only by pensioners, but by young people as well. And our institute will help them with it.

Natalya Dolgova, Individual Entrepreneur, Novosibirsk:

 — We arrived to Irkutsk to the "Gardening and country-house. Garden design" exhibition specially to offer gardeners fruit and berry and decorative crop of the Siberian selection bred in NIISS named after M.A. Lisavenko. The sands are running out, and new plant varieties adapted to our Siberian climate and more "convenient" in attendance are specially bred at the institute. We drove for almost two days to bring wild strawberry bushes, saplings of raspberry, cherry, mespilus and currant to Irkutsk. We liked to communicate with Irkutsk gardeners. We hope that our cooperation with Sibexpocentre will proceed and the next year we will become participants of the "Gardening and country-house. Garden design" exhibition again.

It should be reminded that the XV specialised "Gardening and country-house. Garden design" exhibition will be held on August 18—21, 2015 in Sibexpocentre Exhibition Complex.

We will be glad to see you among participants and visitors of the exhibition!
