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.

Dahlia - Bishop's Children

This post "Dahlia - Bishop's Children" was originally uploaded by Tyra Hallsénius-Lindhe in the blog Tyras Trädgård -Tyra's Garden


October flowers - DAHLIA


We have enjoyed a period of wonderful weather here where about I live, we call it Brittsommar and it is almost like your Indian summer, not as hot but still absolutely marvelous. The kitchen garden is still full of flowers - Nasturtiums, Pot Marigolds, Zinnias, Sweet Peas and Dahlias. The Dahlia on the picture is Bishop’s Children, a Dahlia I grow from seed. I planted them in April and now in October they are all “ in floribus”. I bought the seeds from US. SSE Seed Savers Exchange. The thing I really like with this Dahlia is the very dark foliage, isn’t it just fabulous






The Kichen Garden - Köksträdgården is just updated with a new post about Edible flowers.

By the way the Dahlia is also edible.

such a pretty flower. All my Dahlias have failed this year so I think I might try growing them like you from seed next year
