In the Garden With: Fundera Gront

Good Morning (or now afternoon as the day has flown by out of control)!  I have another Favorite Things post for you.   I had planned for this series to be wrapping up last week, but I have a few people who are still getting me their additions, so I will post them as they arrive.   I am just back in Massachusetts from California (though still on vacation through next week).  I am all discombobulated and a little jet-lagged, and happy to have a few friends help me get back into the swing.  So I introduce to you Nanna Bylund of Sweden whose blog Fundera Gront is a treasure trove of beautiful and inspiring garden images.   Nanna is a Swedish writer that is studying to be a gardener/garden designer and will finish schooling in October. She lives in Gothenburg, and doesn’t have a garden on her own but does garden two small balcony and one allotment plot.

My Favorite Things: Nanna Bylund

I love my allotment plot.

I am fig tree-nerd. I just collect them, cant help it. Right know I don’t have so many of them, only 11, a lot died when I moved this winter. They are small, I have most of them in my kitchen window. I take cuttings when I am abroad and have them as holiday memories.

I also love watering cans and like to photograph them. And I am a cabbage-photographer… 🙂

My favorite book right now is Utypiske haver til et typehus, 39 haveplaner (C. Th. Sörensen).
One of my favorite gardens is Mandelmanns in Rörum, in the south of Sweden. A paradise.

I find inspiration in books, photographs, films… in the nature.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
