Information & contact

Sara Bäckmo – My Kitchen Garden is the most popular garden blog in Sweden. The blog is also much appreciated by gardeners in other countries with a colder climate. My blog is for anyone who wants to know how I turned my modest garden space into a rich and flourishing kitchen garden. A garden that now produces enough vegetables for a family of six – all year round.

The blog is run by me, Sara Bäckmo. I’m a journalist, writer and influencer who lives in the south of Sweden just outside the city Växjö with my husband and four children. My online garden also consists of a Youtube channel and a newsletter, in addition to the blog.
