Been a keen gardening enthusiast since I was very small. Coming from a family with three generations of hardy garden growers in the northern part of Norway, I have always been active in my garden. Form, aesthetics, adaptation to local climate, step by step explanations and tips are the most important agendas. Last five years I've grown a garden in Houston, Texas and at our cottage at Orust, Sweden. I make handcrafted jewellery of silver and natural stones, walk or run with the dogs, care for my husband and misses my four grown-up children. My focus is a practical, pragmatic and truthful approach to both life and gardening challenges.
