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.

Helleborus - Ny bok av Claus Dalby

I got this book called 'Juleroser og Påskeklokker' from a friend of mine and it is so wonderful. A whole book about Helleborus - it has these amazing pictures and a lot of useful information for a novice as myself on the subject Hellerborus . I do recommend you to read it, if you’re not great with the Danish lingo it does really matter it is a feast for the eye.
Claus Dalby has written a lot of beautiful garden books through the years one of them is Drivhus drömmar (Greenhouse dreams) and I wrote about that favourite in 2008. More?...Meet Claus Dalby’s fantastic garden in Risskov

Do follow this link to Ashwood nurseries and read more about the Helleborus. They do have mailorder :-) but I guess it would be frightfully expensive for me to make an order from UK. I just have to find a more local distributor.

I haven’t got a lot of Helleborus in my garden but after reading this book and after the 'visit' to Ashwood Nurseries I do have to make a change about that. I wonder if I could grow them from seeds?

Juleroser og påskeklokker

Vilken bok! Det här är precis vad man vill dyka ner och botanisera i under mellandagarna. Vilken prakt, sagolika bilder och så mycket matnyttigt för en novis som jag är på ämnet Jullrosor Helleborus (Ranunculaceae)

Var finns det en bra plantskola som har fina Julrosor?

Finns det någon som kan tipsa om var man kan hitta fröer eller plantor?

Julrosor är väldigt vackra. Tyvärr har jag ingen aning om nåt bra ställe där det säljs. Kram

Jag har sett Claus Dalbys tv-program (Drivhusdrömmar), men att han också skrev böcker om julrosor visste jag inte. Det saknas en sådan på svenska vad jag vet. Jag älskar julrosor och har mängder av olika plantor i min trädgård.
Jag har köpt mina vackraste julrosor på Ulriksdal i Kivik. De har också en hemsida: De brukar ställa ut både på Skånsk trädgård i Malmö och på Trädgårdsmässan i Älvsjö. Tips!

Annika Christensen said...

Skulle just tipsa om det som Eva redan har skrivit men om du skriver till Trägårdsdrömmar (finns länk hos mig om du inte vet viken blogg det är) så vet jag att de har köpt på postorder.
Boken ser helt underbar ut och jag älskar verkligen dessa. Jag har många fast inte så många olika.
Nu börjar vi längta eller hur??
Ha en skön soffa stund

The illustrations alone make this sound a most appealing book Tyra. Hellebores grow well from seed if sown when it is fresh. You will have to be patient though and wait for three years or so before they flower. I would be happy to send you some seed later in the year if you would like some :)

Christine B. said...

Hellebores are still pretty unusual here in Alaska. I only have a few plants of 'Ivory Prince' but they finally bloomed last spring about 3 years after planting and were beautiful and very long-lasting. I will look for the book at the library, thanks for the recommendation.


TYRA Hallsénius Lindhe said...

Good morning to you all and thak you for your very kind and informative comment. Special thank you to Anna - Ah so they are sown fresh...yes please I would love to have some seeds later on.

Have a great day :-)

Dear Tyra, hope you had a very God Jul and may the New Yar bring you lots of Happiness and good Health and be filled with garden fun.

Would it surprise you very much that know that I can read a bit of Danish? You do pick up on a language when you have quite a few friends who speak it. ;-)

The book sounds lovely, I am a fan of Hellebores and have been for a long time.

BTW Claus's garden looks fantastic!

Läcker bok, Botaniska trädgården

Ha det gott, kram.

Har precis införskaffat Havedrömme. Måste säga att Claus Dalby inte bara är kunnig, är en duktig fotograf utan även skriver väldigt trevligt.
Gott nytt år på dig!!! Allt gott under det nya året - och många blogginlägg!!!

Fantastisk vakre juleroser, som jeg desverre ikke vet noe om.
Ønsker deg et riktig godt nytt år.
Klem Laila

Vart kan man köpa denna boken? Vill ha - vill ha - vill ha:-)
Finns den att köpa i Sverige?

Reflection Through The Seasons said...

Dear Tyra.....

I wish you a very Happy New Year too..... I’ve been taking a glimpse at your blog.... lovely as usual. We are in Switzerland at the moment, we were here for Christmas and return to Wales on Saturday.... I’m longing for spring so that I can get to work on the garden again. As I’ve walked around the village here it has been interesting to see many neatly tended allotments... I’ve picked up a few ideas that I can use on mine at home too.

Blessings, peace, joy and happiness be yours throughout 2010.
Fondest Love - Marion

What a fabulous book Tyra! I just added some hellebores to my garden last year. They were a first for me so I'm sure I would be inspired by reading it too. I put a picture of a gorgeous double black one on my blog Christmas day (from the cover of Heronswood catalog). I hope to find one like it this spring. Happy reading!

garden girl said...

Looks like a gorgeous book Tyra! I love hellebores, and have added three to the garden in the last three years. They're hiding under the snow now, and I'm looking forward to seeing them bloom in early spring. I hope the two newest ones will bloom this year!

I grew some Hellebores from seed a couple of years ago. A breeder sent me some seed, which I planted in December, covered them with bricks (as she instructed!), then took the bricks off in April. Little seedlings came up! I transplanted them to where the other Hellebores grew and they're now part of a little clump of them. They aren't yet blooming size, but perhaps this spring?
I love Hellebores and would love to have some of the doubles. They're GORGEOUS!
