Christina is a well-known garden author in Sweden and has studies in photography, art- & and garden history at the University of Lund as a background. Her keen interest for gardening for over three decades have given Christina the platform from which she is writing, giving lectures as well as taking practical assignments in the garden field.
A floral daily life, a big commitment to environmental issues and to spread knowledge, joy and inspiration within the garden field are the leading words for Christina in her work.
In the beautiful area of Skåne in southernmost of Sweden there are many absolutely lovely gardens & parks of different characters to visit. The interest for gardening here is at a high level with lots of flourishing private gardens, amazing public city parks, colony gardens and ambitious garden societies. Not to mention the beautiful nature and sweeping landscape of Skåne. History of gardens in Skåne goes back to the renaissance when Skåne belonged to Denmark and many castles were built and gardens planned. In our days these castles and their gardens are not just lost memories but actual public parks to visit. Today´s gardens and garden design in Skåne have a great standard. You will find influences from England and southern Europe but you will also find a character of its own, due to the Nordic climate.
