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

Who is the Man - He is the Man

Hip, Hip, Hurrah!


Happy Birthday! Mr. Magnus B. Nilsson
 The famous Swedish nurseryman that celebrate his 105th birthday today.


The gardener and breeder who is the "father" to one of my favourite perennial flower, the Rudbeckia ‘Magnus’ Echinacea purpurea. The Rudbeckia ‘Magnus’ was the plant of the year in 1998 both here in Sweden as well as abroad. I just love this perennial coneflower with the most fascinating colour combination.  The rusty centre combined with the pale cerise coloured silk-like petals. It is not just we people that enjoyes Rudbeckia ‘Magnus’, so does the butterflies and bees too, they love it.





Don't be a stranger - Do write something! Love to hear from you.
