Welcome to Trädgårdsresan
A treasure map for a garden journey through West Sweden.

A TREASURE MAP FOR GARDEN LOVERS

There are small country gardens, organic gardens, large castle gardens, specialist gardens and nurseries, as well as historic gardens in heritage sites. You’ll find everything from fruit, berries, vegetables and herbs to roses, peonies, summer flowers, perennials and flowering trees growing in our gardens.

SO MUCH MORE THAN JUST THE GARDENS

Here are gardens with recommendations for accommodation, food, shops, design and anecdotes. Devoted growers ready to share their knowledge with others, and arrange walks, demonstrations, guided tours, experiences and training courses. All with a local connection.

INSPIRED BY THE GARDEN CAPITAL OF THE WORLD

Trädgårdsresan is a West Swedish version of the National Garden Scheme’s Yellow Book, famous for its magnificent open gardens in Great Britain. 

TOGETHER WE’LL PROTECT OUR BEES

Here at Trädgårdsresan we have started the Bee Fund – in aid of bees and other pollinators. A visit to one of Trädgårdsresan’s gardens includes the opportunity to leave a donation. The funds will be administered in association with the Swedish Beekeeper’s Association. All donations are welcome, large and small.

A West Swedish garden handbook is beginning to take shape and the 2018 garden season has been a gentle start, with 13 visitor gardens on the map. We’re aiming high – towards having 100 gardens in West Sweden.
