What is the “Amberway Approval”?

So you have an empty garden. And you want to make it beautiful. Where should you start? What to buy? Will the plants survive the cold winters? Should you risk and buy a plant that you really like but are unsure if it will survive, as no neighbour grows it? Just calm down and smile : )

One can grow any plant in a cold climate. What varies is the amount of time and effort it will take to make the plant thrive in our Nordic gardens. In the same way, each plant can be decorative and stunning, if placed in the right spot and among the right companions.

Nevertheless, the beginner gardener doesn't want to hear philosophic thoughts. At the first stages (and not only) you need clear guidelines and, even better, a list of easy garden plants. These will allow you to quickly and effortlessly create a beautiful and garden.

To answer this need we have created the Amberway Approval. (more…)

What is this blog about?

This blog was born after searching the internet for reliable information on plants that thrive in the cold climate. I did not find a website that could answer my questions and I thought that maybe, I am not alone in this search.

All the information reported in this blog comes from the gardening experience of my family. I am not rewriting content found on other websites, or borrowing random plant pictures from the internet, just to make the blog prettier.

My aim is to create a blog that is as objective as possible, providing usefulĀ  information. Not just "oh... look how beautiful this plant is!" or "this rose is quite hardy". Yet this is not a cold collection of data, but a blog that wishes to convey my passionĀ  for gardening.
