A lush paradise

At the southern end of the Hultåsen nature reserve, with its pine and birch woods, and smooth rocky outcrops dotted with heather, lies a little paradise. A half acre private garden which Camilla Danielsson has created over 15 years, inspired by her understanding of colour, shape and aroma. The garden has six different rooms. The entrance is embellished with showy perennials in pink and red, and a sunny rose and herb bed in blue, grey and burgundy. Further on you’ll find a green oasis under standard rhododendrons, a ‘hot’ border by the ancient granite bedrock, a woodland area with white flowering bushes and perennials, and finally a glade between the garden and the nature surrounding it.

The creation of the garden resulted in the book “Känn trädgården” which is about finding your own idea for a garden and using it as a compass when you design your own plot. 

The garden will be open for Trädgårdsresan and the Bee Fund when Camilla, accompanied by a beekeeper, will guide you round the garden and talk specifically about plants and growing methods which are especially good for pollinators. Refreshments and sales of the garden’s surplus will be available during the day. Please book visits at other times.  

Dogs on leads are welcome and there are places to eat your own picnic in the garden. There is no public toilet. Bus stop: Trollängen, 250m. There is parking for a few cars by the fence. Buses can’t drive all the way up the road. The garden is undulating with narrow rocky paths in some places and many steps.
