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.

ABC Wednesday 'B' for Buxus sempervirens

© This post - ABC Wednesday B , was originally uploaded and written by Tyra at the blog The greenhouse in Tyra's Garden http://tyras-greenhouse.blogspot.com/



ABC Wednesday ‘B’ This week I'll post an ABC in both The Greenhouse and Tyra's Garden.


'B'

Buxus sempervirens




A small topiary made of a Boxwood, just few years old. I make a lot of these topiary each year, I guess I like them a lot because it's an evergreen shrub and we haven't got a lot of those here in Scandinavia. Buxus sempervirens got it's name from Carl von Linné back in 1753. Buxus means box and sempervirens evergreen.







Buxus sempervirens is a flowering plant in the genus Buxus, native to western and southern Europe, northwest Africa, and southwest Asia, from southern England south to northern Morocco, and east through the northern Mediterranean region to Turkey.
It is an evergreen shrub or small tree growing to 1-9 m tall, with a trunk up to 20 cm diameter The leaves are arranged in opposite pairs, green to yellow-green, oval, 15-30 mm long and 5-13 mm broad. The hermaphrodite flowers are inconspicuous, greenish-yellow, with no petals and are pollinated by insects; the fruit is a three-lobed capsule containing 3-6 seeds. wikipedia Buxus

Hi Mildred they are both pretty and fun I think, it's a pity though that they grow so slowly/ Tyra

Oh that is so pretty! I don't know how to do that, so I only admire the works of others!

I do like boxwood too but I don't have any. Hmmm, I could put one in a pot, couldn't I?

I think this is so creative. I don't know much about gardening, but I do love the evergreen type bushes and trees that we have in our yard.

You are teaching me more - both "Topiary" an the "Buxus" are new to me. But then, I don't have green fingers :-(

Tyra in Vaxholm said...

Your blogs look absolutely fantastic. Straight out of a lifestyle magazine. Very nice.
And I'm a big buxusfan too. Can't wait for spring to come *sigh*

I love boxwood. Mine are blooming. Not noticeable, the flowers, but the fragrance is that of grape flavored soft drink (Koolaid).

Gail said...

How lovely...they are everywhere in Nashville! gail

Suzanne said...

I like botanicals, I especially like to watercolor them.

Grace and Bradley said...

Hi Tyra, we have boxwoods in our garden on Cape Cod also. I try to grow them as ahedge around the rose garden. It takes a long time and we are still trying
