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.

Winter Flowers - Phalaenopsis

We have now lit candle number two and we are entering the second week of Advent, this wonderful time that comes to an end on Christmas Day.


I wonder... what kind of flowers do you have in your windows during December?

On my windowsill I have a lot of orchids and this one has such a pretty colour, almost Christmas red. I cannot think of a winter flowering plant that is more durable and that flowers for such a long time as the Phalaenopsis.





Tips and ideas how to care for your Phalaenopsis,
about - watering, fertilizer, light, potting etc.


What to do after the blooming is over. After care.

What a gorgeous color. I don't think I've seen a red one before. It's perfect for Christmas! I'm excited that my Phalaenopsis has a bud stalk emerging. Mine is white tho. Nothing near as vibrant. I have amaryllis in bloom on my windowsills. They are pretty too.
