A stroll through our Danish garden: Late August garden tour

Welcome to our August garden tour in Fredericia, Denmark (Zone 8a). Take a stroll through our 260 square meter flower garden and share our love for gardening, our flower borders, containers, and flower beds.

You know... all the things that garden nerds like us love!

A symphony of colors in our Danish garden

Join us on a journey through our charming 260 square meter flower garden in Fredericia, Denmark, nestled in Zone 8a.

As we open the gates to our little slice of horticultural heaven (and we do mean little), you'll discover a captivating world where colors, textures, and fragrances harmonize in perfect botanical bliss.

Our garden is a labor of love, a testament to the joys of nurturing nature, and an example of how you don't need to spend a lot to get a lot of color and texture in your garden.

You'll find carefully curated flower borders, flourishing containers, and well-loved flower beds. Each element has been lovingly tended, and together, they weave a tapestry of natural beauty that we can't wait to share with you.

Flower borders: A palette of perennials and annuals

Our flower borders are the heart of our garden. These are adorned with a medley of perennials and annuals, each carefully chosen and propagated from seeds and cuttings.

As you stroll through, you'll encounter everything from the elegant Liatris to the charming Toad Lillies, all finding their place here and contributing to a modest, yet delightful, display of colors and textures. Notice how we keep talking about color and texture? It's what makes every garden unique and special.

And it's not just us who appreciate the beauty; the bees join in the celebration too, dancing from bloom to bloom in search of nectar. We managed to get a few of them in this video tour, too.

Highlights of our garden tour

Here at the end of August, you can experience the highlights up close and personal:

  • Heuchera: Marvel at the intricate foliage and different shades of Heuchera, which adds a touch of elegance to our garden.

  • Houttuynia cordata: The vibrant leaves of Houttuynia cordata make a bold statement in our landscape.

  • Imperata cylindrica 'Red Baron': This grass variety, with its striking red foliage, is a true showstopper.

  • Impatiens: The delicate blooms of Impatiens bring a burst of color to our garden and containers.

  • Coleus: Coleus, with its multicolored leaves, adds an artistic touch to our borders.

  • Wisteria: Our Wisteria vine, and the way we have it using an old grape vine as a base, is a sight to behold.

  • Echinacea: Echinacea, the coneflower, stands tall and proud, attracting pollinators with its nectar-rich blooms.

  • Hosta: The lush foliage of Hosta provides a calming contrast to the vibrant blooms around.

...and many more!

We've also shared tips on how we keep our stone path weed-free, introduced you to our Bornholm fig tree, and showcased the elegant Echinacea 'White Swan' and the charming Toad Lily (Allen's favorite and one of the first plants in our garden).

Cottage-inspired to Danish native plants

Our garden is a testament to the diversity of gardening styles. From cottage-inspired flower combinations that exude rustic charm to the inclusion of native Danish plants that celebrate the local ecosystem, our garden showcases the possibilities of harmonizing different aesthetics to create a unique and inviting space.

Whether you're an experienced gardener seeking inspiration or someone who simply enjoys the beauty of a well-tended flower garden, we hope our tour offers you ideas and a glimpse of the profound joy that gardening brings into our lives.
