This container garden brightens the corner of Mimersgade and Midgårdsgade in our Ydre Nørrebro neighborhood. The little garden of potted plants is a dogged and valiant attempt at carving out green space in a broad expanse of concrete. It’s closest competition being a ring of anemic imported palm trees, not at all acclimated to the Nordic climate. Though the plants and pots chosen to grow in this corner arrangement have probably also been shipped into Denmark to be sold at the local hardware store, this container garden set up seems more rooted than the landscape design of the adjacent public park. The city needs green spaces and growing things and if they aren’t part of the official public space design, ad-hoc attempts like this fine example will pop up.
