Rosendals Trädgård – day 2

December 8th, 2016

I’m back today with more photos from Rosendals Trädgård in Stockholm. What I loved about this garden was the wonderful variety of edible space, open space, cutting garden, and enclosed garden spaces. They provide such a wonderful inspiration for a garden made of rooms. The huge edible garden space was quite impressive, it provides much of the vegetables needed in their cafe. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch while there, which was super convenient! All public gardens should have wonderful little cafes!
So what do you think of this lovely garden? Any favorite things?

    Susy, the gardens there are amazing. Some day maybe mine will be that well kept. They must put a lot of work into keeping them well groomed. I’m still battling decades of weed seeds being uncontrollably spread over my garden area. This year was a year of definite improvement but it was a major amount of hours to keep it relatively weed free. I discovered a stirup/hoola hoe that really helped keep those raised beds weed free. This next year will be another year of development. Seeing those gardens in Sweden, inspire me to press forward with more improvements. How about you? Does visiting those gardens inspire you to bring some of what you see back to your garden?

    Have a great day in the Maine cold weather.

    Thank you for sharing these pictures! We had our first snow yesterday here in northwest Missouri so it’s inspiring to see gardens from a warmer season.
