The company "Smaragdokipos" (Emerald Garden) was founded in March 1990 by Smaragda Tsakmakidou.

Her special relationship with plants and her love for nature led this young student of Agriculture Technology to make the daring decision to realize her ambitious dream. 

In the beginning, she settled in an open-air space with a small greenhouse in the center of Thessaloniki.

She focused her attention to indoor plants with great success. In the meantime, realizing the ever-increasing needs of the customers, she expanded her activities to include marketing of outdoor plants, flowerpots, medicines, fertilizers, and gardening items.  

In 1993, she moved to new, privately owned premises occupying an area of 300m2 in the centre of Thessaloniki (N. Egnatia Street), while turning her attention to the marketing of outdoor plants.

Meanwhile, she started a new activity, i.e., garden design and installation

Since 1995, "Smaragdokipos" has been following a course of rapid development. The company continuously broadens its range of products and improves their quality. 

In the meantime, the company never stops investing in new technologies and know-how, in order to continuously provide qualitative services meeting the ever-increasing needs of our customers.
