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.

Tulips in the gravel - Tulipa


Do you remember that I did some late planting of bulbs in November last year?

Here are the result, tulips in the gravel! I just love botanical tulips and my deers doesn't likes then, perfect. I think I like them so much because they are 'in floribus' early and they are so small, pretty and really genuine looking. When it's cold they close up and says -"We are freezing where is the sun" and when the sun comes and warm the tulips they opens up and says in a tulip choir - "Look at me, look how beautiful I am!" Some of the them are extremely early and they had already bloomed over when I took this photo below.

Botanical tulips in the gravel. Tyra's Garden.

Kaufmanniana Tulips were developed from the Tulipa kaufmanniana species, which is native to Turkestan. They are some of the earliest tulips to flower. Kaufmanniana Tulips are generally very low growing (some are only 4 - 5"/10 - 12 cm tall), which makes them ideal for rock gardens and containers. If left undisturbed, they will normally return year after year and gradually multiply. text: The Plant Expert photo: Tyra

Tulipa 'Persian Pearl' or 'Eastern Star' it said Eastern star on the packet but they look more like Persian Pearl correct me if I'm wrong.

These are the really early ones the Greigii Tulipa

Greigii Tulips were developed from the Tulipa greigii species, which is native to Turkestan. Greigii Tulips are fairly short as tulips go, but the blooms are very large in proportion to the plant as a whole. They come in very bright colours, like red and yellow, and the flowers open wide in full sun, creating cup-shaped blooms that can be more than 5" (12 cm) in diameter when fully open. text: The Plant Expert photo: Tyra

Den svart vita flugsnapparen Ficedula h. hypoleuca som bodde i holken utanför mitt sovrumsfönster förra året är tillbaka! Visst är det kul.

Those are really beautiful. I have got some yellow and red ones planted under my shrubs. They are already done blooming though. Geraniums and roses are trying hard to get ready over in Germany. /Andrea
