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.

The Big Dig

October is absolutely perfect for planting. This is my project "The Big Dig" . I'm going to plant 39 roses. 12 different kind of roses 3 of each except for Rosa Rugosa 'Hansa' that is my husbands favorite so of those I have 6. My plan is that they are going to form a hedge.... hm we will see......and oh YES, look I have a real plan.



This is how they arrived and this is were I order my roses.
Jag beställde mina rosor på postorder, det fungerade jättebra! Skönt att sitta hemma och planera hur man vill ha det, man kan ju planera så bra när man får information om utseende, höjd växtsett etc, direkt på sidan där man sedan beställer rosorna. Toppen tycker jag.

Meet Henry! Henry Hudson, he is from Canada.

Henry Hudson En härdig rugosahybrid från Kanada. Vackert grågrönt, friskt bladverk. Knopparna är rosaskiftande . Blommar med vita, doftande blommor från juni till hösten. Höjd och bredd 1-1,2 meter. Skall klara blöta lägen. Mycket frisk sort. Zon 1-7

Spännande med så många nya rosor! Bilden med småbilderna är tyvärr inte klickbar - är lite nyfiken på vad det är för rosor du har/ska plantera. :)

Vad häftigt med roshäck. Hur har du grundat? När du valt rosor, har du tittat på färg, blomning, höjd..??
Berätta gärna mera.

Ha en skön dag!

When I left the rat race and moved here my nicer colleagues gave me a rose called The Spirit of Freedom, it is flourishing in France

One of my greatest pleasures this year has been having the time to stop and smell the roses...
