Old plants in a new way

This Swedish heritage garden adjoins a historic listed 18th century building. Old varieties are grown here using organic methods, and the garden contains a large show border, a smaller greenhouse for cultivation of vegetables, and a children’s play area with a play house. The plant displays vary from year to year. A café is open during the summer. You can bring your own picnic into the garden which is open all day every day. During the year guided tours, and courses in everything from garden cultivation to building restoration are held.

Around Mariagården there is a nature trail with a rich fauna – a feature appreciated by bird watchers and dog owners. Dogs on leads are welcome in the garden. A carpenter, a horticulturalist and supervised adults with learning difficulties work at Mariagården. The garden is accessible for prams and pushchairs, rollators and wheelchairs but in the café wheelchair users will need some help from our friendly staff. There is a public toilet. 

Buses and trains stop at Stenungsund’s station, 15 minutes walk away. There is parking by the garden.

Collaboration with Northeast England
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.
