Garden Calendar

Norrviken is beautiful all year round. The structure of the garden and its pronounced elements with clipped box hedges are always decorative, just like all the evergreen conifers. Rudolf Abelin took great pride in always having something in flower, at least 49 weeks a year.

But every now and then the beauty is enhanced. When something special is in full bloom or when a lot bursts into blossom at the same time, you are overwhelmed by the effect.

As we cannot control the weather, it is difficult to say exactly when the flowers will appear. Why not join us on Instagram, so you can get updates about what is about to start flowering.
