Mentally and visually stimulated by the bright personality of Emily Bratt, a magnificent archipelago, Dahlias, Iris, faded Sun flowers and a flock of animals I’m back in Gothenburg to write this post.
Emily Bratt sure is a another kind of garden designer and slow flower devotee who works as a consult in gardening and farmer-florist from her home in Tjörn. She walks, talks, write and make a podcast about gardening and try to challenge traditional garden standards and broaden the pictures of what a garden can be.
Animals are an important part of this eden. Here: Swedish Muscovy ducks and Bohuslän-Dals black hens. But there is also poodles, a variety of birds and snakes. And soon – the flock will be expanded with a couple of white peacocks.
Looking at the work and passion of a small-scale floral agriculture, and the result of many hours and hard work.
The slow flowers “movement” support the ‘grown not flown’ philosophy.
Grown from the soil up, Calendulas.
Why be a pigeon when you can be a peacock?
Authentic, sustainable organic farming.
Soft mix of wild and planted.
