Hannu Sarenström is a self-taught gardener with a past in the restaurant business. When Hannu moved to Kinnekulle in Västergötland in the late 90's he became interested in gardening. "The garden took over, I disappeared into it" Hannus beautiful garden, combined with his approach towards gardening has made him well-known and popular in gardening circles. "Gardening for me is the experience of looking at what plants do together because I don't think individually. It's like decorating, you create an atmosphere. That's the meaning of life, the laid-back life, drinking wine and smelling the flowers! Hannu doesn't think that a garden needs to be perfect, quite the contrary, it's the garden that isn't that creates the atmosphere he likes the best. "Grassy meadows is my biggest source of inspiration, real nature". Hannu also lectures and writes about gardening. Our pattern Skimmer has drawn inspiration from him and his work.
