I am Jan Bjerring and this is my new Garden Blog.
I have created this Garden blog in order to share the pleasures we find in building and tending our environment. I shall be showing you plants, flowers , trees and shrubs. I shall tell about which ones were successful and which ones were not. I shall show what we have buildt and how we buildt it. Hopefully there will be some useful tips and tricks to share and maybe we can help you avoid some of the failures and mistakes we’ve made.
I shall also include pictures of various projects and plants which, hopefully will be inspiering.
We live on the outskirts of Oslo, Norway. According to the USDA-zones map we are in a 4-5 zone. This means that plants with a hardiness of 4 should be safe. (though in our experience they will need to be planted in a sheltered place). Hardiness 5 is the safest bet.

Gardening requires lots of water — most of it in the form of perspiration. ~Lou Erickson
