Tyra's Garden is a small garden on the island of Resarö situated in the inner part of the archipelago near the small town Vaxholm, outside Stockholm. Tyra's Garden is mostly an ornamental vegetable garden, my potager. But flowers are of course an important ingredience, for beauty and pollination. The climate in these parts is quite demanding as the northerly winds can be strong and cold. THIS BLOG 'Tyra's Garden' is not entirely a gardenblog it contains much more. About me: Enthusiastic amateur gardener and photographer from Vaxholm, Sweden. Designed and built my Greenhouse and Potager in Tyra's Garden 2003. Love the outdoor life, gardening and sailing especially. View my profile

Lilioceris lilii, Scarlett lily beetle


The Scarlet lily beetle.

Lilioceris lilii. LiljebaggenThe Scarlet lily beetle in (unfortunately) Tyra´s Garden

Red alert! The Scarlet lily beetle is really a menace to lily lovers. They are quite easy to spot but a little bit tricky to pick. I really don´t like them so at this time of year I go for a small beetle hunt almost everyday.
Lilioceris lilli, liljebaggen så vacker där med den lysande röda färgen, men usch! Det är en riktig plåga för alla liljeälskare. De är glupska de små liven och så den där äckliga sörjan larven ligger i. Fy, det är nu på våren man skall jaga liljebaggen om man inte vill ha dem i sin trädgård. Baythion myrmedel har jag blivit rekommenderad att det skall vara bra och blir de för många kanske man frestas att prova på det.

Good hunting luck!

I have those nasty beatles too not nice because they totally destroy your lilies if you let them.

Wonderful bright red color! It's a shame that they attach lilies.
