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

Are you potty?

My babies are all over the place!
Seeds, soil, seedlings and pots, pots, pots everywhere. Now is the time of the year that I occupy most of the windowsills in our house and the veranda I place an extra table for all my babies. This year I have promised my self to take it easy……and that promise is so dreadfully hard to keep. In this cold climate you simply have to start early indoors with vegetables like chillies, tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, physalis etcetera. My favourite flowers in my vegetable garden are the Zinnia, Dahlia and Calendula and of those are the Zinnias the only ones I have to sow indoors. Sometimes I test out seeds from my own Dahlias and then I have to sow then indoors as well.

I found for me a new sort of Calendula Officinalis, ‘Triangle Flashback’ height 60 cm, pink and yellow, very exciting to see how that one will turn out.

Have I nice weekend.

Potty TYRA!

I love zinnias too. My indoor growing station is filling up fast. I may be putting pots on the window sills before long too.

For some reason I never had Zinnias before but I will this year! :-)

Hello Tyra! Thanks for visiting and saying hello.
I've thoroughly enjoyed a quick browse through your blog this morning, and will come back for a longer visit when time allows.
Your world looks fascinating and beautiful! :)

Wow! Those Calendula's are just breath taking! I'm going to keep my eyes open for them but I don't think I'll find them around here near New York.
