Bouqets & Decorations, In Season & Plants

Bouquets in September

During the late summer and early autumn it is truly easy to make bouquets straight from the garden. Not just small but big and generous. Dried seed heads from the allium ‘Purple Sensation’ are so lovely in the bouquets now. I allow most of them to stay in the flowerbeds…

September corner

September and autumn is here. In the cooler air and in the colours which are slowly becoming warmer. The summer is still here. In all flowers and the feeling they give. Love it. Need that. It is protected near the wall of the house. Many of the dahlias will be…

Bugle as an edge plant

I use Bugle (Ajuga repants) ‘Braunherz’ and ‘Black Scollop’ as an edging plant in one of my flowerbeds, something that a lot of people wonder over how it works. Well, this is how I think and do. Bugle is a ground covering plant in the way it grows and does…

Nuances of green

Between spring and summer, Bird Cherry and Lilac (it’s late this year). Budding, gossamer, light and irresistible. There is no need for anything else right now. The oak is in its lime green stage, the pansies are at their most beautiful and the Dahlias are awaiting the warmer weather. Allium…

Fixed and replanted ‘vole bed’

The infested flowerbed is now dug up, re dug and re planted. When it came down to it, it turned out that most of the plants survived although there were also some big losses. On the other hand it is not certain that they would have survived for long if…

Helleborus

It started with a couple of normal Helleborus Niger when they became easy to get hold of as a flower for Christmas. Pretty quickly the desire for all the oriental ones came and since then I have added more and more new ones every spring. I actually think I can’t…

May

May is usually a divided month, even though ‘May’ as a whole has a magical shimmer over it that is longed for in the darkness of winter, like a desperate parched person in the desert looking for water. In April the first careful steps are taken towards spring, with emphasis…
