Emily Bratt

En annan slags trädgård

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.

Pigeon peacocks.

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.
