Lena Israelsson

Lena Israelsson is one of Sweden’s most valued gardeners. She is a newspaper journalist and has published a series of books, including the Handbok för köksträdgården (Handbook for the Vegetable Garden), which is usually described as a vegetable grower's bible. In 2004, she released the book Cityodling (Growing City). Lena Israelsson is of Norrbotten origin and has always had a strong interest in gardening. In a barren climate, she learned how important the foundation is to succeed in cultivation. The books she has written, and the knowledge she conveys, is thus based on deep personal experience. She currently resides in Sweden.
