Fruits and berries
Why Won't My Japanese Quince Grow Fruits?
Don't be surprised if your Japanese quince fails to produce fruits. There are a few things you need to know about pollinating the bush!
Growing Beautiful Pink Currants
Have you ever heard of pink currants? I actually didn't know about them until a few years ago. Now, it's one of my favorite berries in the garden. This variety is called Pink Champagne!
Columnar Trees for the Cottage Garden
My cottage garden is so small, but I don't want to give up my dream of growing fruit trees here. The solution? Columnar trees!
Pollinating Peach, Apricot and Nectarines
The fruit trees that flower early might need some help with the pollination. Pollinating peach, apricot and nectarine in my garden is one of my favorite tasks in spring. This is how you do it!
How to prune blackberries
My blackberry bushes always grow extremely large. That's why I need to keep up and prune them as they grow. This is how I prune blackberries at home.
How to Freeze Lemons
I often freeze lemons here at home, especially the peels after using the lemons for other projects. They are the perfect marmalade ingredient!
My homemade rosehip puree
The rosehips are ripe in Sweden and that means a lot of picking here at home! I make rosehip puree that I can use in plenty of different desserts. Yum!
Lemons from CrowdFarming
I'm so happy with the organic lemons I recently got from the organization CrowdFarming. I am really excited about this new way to buy vegetables straight from the producer.
How to grow jostaberries at home
Jostaberries are the perfect cross between gooseberries and blackcurrants. Jostaberry marmalade is already one of my new favorites at the breakfast table!
My Duke blueberry plants
It's finally time to start my little jungle project in the polytunnel! I want to grow plenty of tall plants in there and the blueberry variety Duke seemed like the perfect choice.
Companion planting with strawberries
Every gardener should try this companion planting combination. Strawberries are just the best! Try companion planting strawberries with taller plants like for example fava beans.
