Fountains are great for creating atmosphere in the garden.
However, as we enter the fall and it is getting colder, it is time to think about winter proofing your fountains.
Fountains are beautiful to have outside all year round, but when the frost comes, it is important that you make sure to empty your fountain trays of water, so that they do not freeze when the frost sets in. Place your fountain trays so that they cannot be filled with water during the winter.
If you are in doubt about how to frost-proof your garden pots, read more here.

Handmade garden pots
The productions in the area around Saigon are filled. Everyone is active and producing beautiful garden pots. All pots are made by hand – a craft that has been practiced throughout generations.
The large kilns for the burning of pots are also filled. All garden pots are carefully put into the kilns when they are dry and ready for burning. Before the kilns are lit up, a prayer is made in the little prayer house at the end of the kilns for successful burning.
Bustle in the warehouse
Grama Design’s warehouse in Vietnam is also starting to get very full. It is therefore fortunate that the first containers of garden pots for the spring will already be shipped in three weeks.
And fortunately, we have our wonderful Danish / Vietnamese colleague, Hien, employed to keep track of everything in the warehouse.
We can therefore already sense that spring is on its way.

New life in the old barn from 1800
The work to transform the old barn from 1800 into a beautiful and rustic showroom is now well under way, and we expect to be able to open the doors to our new showroom in May 2018.
In addition to the old barn, part of the old stables from the 1700 will also be transformed into showroom. Furthermore, our big fountains and black soil pots will have their own beautiful space overlooking the fields and the small lake.

Finally, spring is on its way, and a good way to get the spring feeling started is by making your own small vegetable garden, where you can sow the early varieties.
Whether you live in an apartment or a house, it’s nice to have your own little vegetable garden. A good alternative to the raised bed is to make a beautiful vegetable garden out with garden pots.
You can either use a single garden pot, or have a lot of small pots where you plant lettuce and certain herbs that can tolerate the early spring.

Terracotta pots are very suitable for growing vegetables, as the garden pots are made from natural materials. The clay which is used to make the pots come from the Mekong Delta in Vietnam, and the garden pots are sustainably produced, why you can easily use them to grow vegetables.
