The Greenhouse,

is about growing matters, focusing on my greenhouse and potager. I grow mainly vegetables, herbs and spices but flowers have their given place too. From seed to table, this is the nursery for my living food, we cook a lot of delicious food and I say a potager is the cook’s best friend. The greenhouse makes it possible to grow essential, colourful, warmth loving fruit and vegetables even in this climate such as tomatoes and chillies. My main blog is Tyras Trädgård/Tyra's Garden.

Oh Happy Day!

Allium cepa, The Greenhouse in Tyra's Garden 2008
Finally the day has come when it's warm enough to begin with the greenhouse and potager. After a cold morning the temperature klimbed up to 10 degrees and that means that I have above 20 in the greenhouse...nice.

Springflowers, herbs, roses and an Artishoke

April in the garden, the potager.

After a hard few days work the potager is clean and tidy and the soil is ready, time for the fun bit planting. I planted some new Lavendula Officinalis plants twelve of them that I found in the store for an irrestistable price, I just had to have them. Then I planted some seeds spinach and Calendula Officinalis in the potager tomorrow it's time for the onions that's going to be fun, I love onions and usually I have about 6 different types Allium Cepa.

Hello, spring is here in Germany as well. I love lavender and I've got an old one that selfseeds, so I haven't had to buy anymore which is great. Greetings from Germany, Andrea

Tyra, your potager and your greenhouse are so beautiful! I'm looking forward to seeing the potager as it grows this spring and summer.
