Information in English
Malmö Castle Garden is a fully organic garden in Malmö, Sweden.
Work on the garden was begun in 1997 and the garden was run by a non-profit organisation in cooporation with the city council. The gardens are now run by the council and the popular café is run by the friends association, the "Vänförening".
The garden aims to be a meeting place and a source of inspiration for local people and tourists alike. The gardens are host to a large number of cultural happenings over the year, music concerts, theatre, horticultural workshops, plant days and of course all those spontaneous events that occur in green open spaces.
The garden consists of a large vegetable/cut-flower garden and eight themed gardens: the rose garden, insect garden, hanging garden, schools garden, Heidi’s garden, climbing garden and the Japanese garden. Some of the gardens are new, some old and some are being phased out and replaced.
A nursery is maintained with over 200 kinds of perennial plants for sale.
The gardeners are accessible during the day and always willing to answer any questions.
One of the main features of the garden is the fact that people are welcome to give a helping hand any time and hopefully pick up some gardening skills on the way. Many co-workers and volunteers successfully continue with some form of horticultural education at local colleges.
The head gardener can be contacted at e-mail, see Kontakt.
