Those, who don’t want to have to do without gardening even in the winter, can find numerous products for growing plants inside their own four walls today. Every apartment can be turned into a decorative or herb garden with the aid of a mini greenhouse or an illuminated plant shelf. A trend that is in the meantime also expanding to encompass larger cultivated areas.

Delicious steaks, crispy chicken wings or simply just grilled sausages – this has long since not been restricted to the summer months. For around five to six years more and more BBQ fans have been pursuing their passion in the ice and snow here in Germany. Those, who thought this fashion would be over in a flash, were mistaken. Standing in front of a BBQ in temperatures around zero to prepare a sumptuous meal has become a special experience for many people and thus there is no longer a winter break for them.
