Discover Danish gardening: A hidden haven for you in Fredericia

If you’re planning a cruise to Fredericia, Denmark, then I’d like to welcome you to our humble garden retreat tucked away behind our house on ‘Queens Street’. We think it's a great cruise ship activity for anyone coming to our lovely town.

We are thrilled to invite you, cruise ship passengers and garden friends, to explore our hygge-filled space that beautifully showcases Danish gardening at its finest.

With a focus on native plants and a reflection of our country's unique horticultural practices, our garden offers a delightful opportunity for flower and nature lovers to witness the beauty of Danish gardening firsthand.

If you’d like to stop by and see it while you’re in town, just drop me a line to arrange a time. My family and I speak English (and Danish and German), and we’d be honoured to show you around our garden.

Immerse yourself in Danish gardening

As you step into our garden, we want you to feel embraced by the essence of Danish/Nordic gardening.

It's a style characterised by simplicity, clean lines, and a harmonious blend with the natural surroundings. We take pride in creating an atmosphere of tranquillity, where you can truly immerse yourself in the beauty of nature and experience the Danish concept of "hygge" — that cosy feeling of contentment that permeates every corner.

Haven’t heard of hygge before? We’d be happy to try our best to explain it to you and show you which of our flowers give us the most hygge feeling.

Native plants of Denmark

We’ve carefully curated our garden to feature an array of native plants that thrive in the local climate and soil conditions.

Take a few minutes to see them for yourself while your cruise ship is docked in Fredericia. It's an opportunity for you to marvel at the indigenous flora of Denmark, each plant telling a story of its connection to our beloved landscape.

From vibrant wildflowers to hardy perennials, you'll witness the splendour of Danish bluebells, yellow irises, and more, among other native species, showcasing the rich biodiversity of our region.

Discover Danish gardening techniques

As you wander through our garden, we hope you'll take notice of the techniques we employ in our Danish gardening practices. We’re passionate about creating harmonious outdoor spaces that celebrate the beauty of nature.

We’re happy to talk about plant placement, soil preparation (in such a wet climate), and efficient use of space, which reflect our dedication to sustainable gardening. We are more than happy to share insights and answer any questions you may have, providing valuable gardening tips and inspiration for your own green endeavours.
