Not far from here lies Alsta Trädgårdar. It has been a source of inspiration for me ever since Per and Margareta bought the run down garden with greenhouses badly in need of repair.

Over the years they have turned the place into a culture center within a well developed garden.

In the picture above you see a small park inside the large main greenhouse.

Another greenhouse has an art gallery under a great canopy of grape vines and other plants. Concerts and theatre are also performed here.

They have a wonderful coffee shop with home made pastries and sandwiches.

On top of all that they have a good supply of plants, seeds and gardening products for sale.
