Wishing you a merry Christmas!24.12.2016
Find some time to stop the clock from ticking.
And try your best to dare let all around pass without care.
Because miracles happen without your endeavour.

Have the loveliest and peaceful Christmas, and let the Christmas magic enchant your soul and clarify your view of everything around.

Winter is back17.12.2016
And Cristmas is exactly one week away. Are you looking forward to it? I am, very much. And if you believe in the Christmas miracle or not what the nature created outside this morning must have been a magic. Magical beauty of soft rime. We might not have Christmas white of snow but if the temperature remains below zero like today it could just as well be wite from soft rime :-)
Winter is back17.12.2016
To be honest this morning looked like anything but sunny. When I woke up at 6 am it was clear that the sky would NOT be clear but overcast. Yet I took my camera and when the light broke I went outside. First thing I noticed was this hedge out of Portugal laurel we planted some 6 years ago. I never knew how much it has grown by now, it almost 2m tall and beautiful.

And before I go today there is something else I want to say. This time next week we will be awaiting Christmas evening. Kids expecting many presents and adults having made a deal among themselves already a month before that they don't need the gifts because they are too old to receive gifts, that it is for the children whose surprise and expectation we do not want to spoil. I know. But still, isn't it great when you get something, a small thing, which is so unexpected, and makes you feel happy that someone took the time to think what might bring a smile to your face? Try it. Not because Christmas is about giving presents. But because Christmas is the time to be kind to one another. I got my present yesterday - this gorgeous stone, small but so beautiful and unexpected, and now I know I want to make someone else happy. So passing it on :-)
New hellebores02.12.2016
With the arrival of December there is not only more frost but also more flowers! No wonder this evergreen perennial is called (among many other names) Christmas rose - some species or varieties begin opening their flowers now. All plants are very nice and strong, either with flower buds or capable of flowering this spring. You can order online or come to our Prague shop to choose in person. Plants ordered online orders may be sent now or you can leave them here if you wish to collect them in spring. So go ahead and choose a nice one, quantities of the some varieties are limited.
Winter discouns are on01.12.2016
As of 1st December we are starting our traditional winter discount system which will allow you make a pre-order for collection in spring with a nice discount. All details are here.
End of November30.11.2016
The weather is getting really wintery day by day, though, the weather girls promise a short period od thaw for Friday = up to +7°C. But today is today and tonight's temperature will be just the opposite -7°C. One could have guessed so - the sky was blue and clear until the evening, and the dusk was extraordinary! Look at the picture. If my feet did not start to get cold as I stood outside gazing at the sky I would possibly stand there for the complete half an hour that this show lasted. It was worth every minute so get ready for a freezing night :-)
Morning fun10.11.2016
Yes, a little bit of white fun early in the morning :-) In the Czech Republic we have a saying about tomorrow's St.Martin's Day - St.Martin comes on a white horse meaning that on that day the first snow usually comes. Well, this year he was one day early and was quickly gone.

And as for the plants, the ground is still soft (not frozen) and good for planting. The plants will definitely be happier in cold soil rather than overwinter in a container where they might dry out.
Autumn - now for real10.11.2016
The sun of Indian summer as well as early autumn is gone and we have a regular dose of typical November chill. Yet the thermometer remains just above zero (at least during the day) so the nature has time to show all its colours.

A few days ago a friend invited me for a hike to Voděradské bučiny near Prague so I went. The weather was just what it should be and even though I make only a couple of photos I could not miss the scenery, what do you think?
Autumn - now for real10.11.2016
Isn't it just great that some plants keep on blooming even so late and at this temperature! This is BLUE LAPISautumn aster. So healthy and full of blooms.

Previously I used to post autumn sweetgum pictures in one go as a theme. But I can understand that it may have been too much beauty at once so this year I decided to administer them in doses, like during an addiction treatment :-)Though, do we really get rid of our addition to beauty and fantastic colours ...?

This variety with fig-like leaves is called ROTUNDILOBA.
Autumn - now for real10.11.2016
In the morning looking out of my bedroom window I was fascinated by the autumn habit of this DIANA Japanese larch with twisted branches. I always liked looking through plants against the sun rather than just seeing their insolated front, there is a different feeling to it.

Another gorgeous Sunday morning23.10.2016
Do you also have that feeling that Sunday mornings are far better than any other day? There is silence and peace all around (unless you have a DIY neighbour who can't stop drilling, hammering, sawing or simply annoying). And you have that blissful feeling that the whole world is alright. Pity that in most cases this feeling does not last until Monday morning and the first radio news, but anyway, let's enjoy today without any hassle till the last minute, shall we? :-)

The first tree to attract your attention at the entry to our Prague nursery is this red maple called SCANLON. It started changing colours several weeks ago and has not stopped yet. An ultimate eye-catcher and not a too big tree for smaller gardens.
Another gorgeous Sunday morning23.10.2016
So in order to let you see as much of the October beauty as possible I went up on the roof with my camera to make a few pictures of what you can expect when you visit us. Autumn is really a fascinating season, don't you think?

Do you also get upset when trying to make a picture of something beautiful you see and your are sure that the photo will look exactly as your eyes see it, but then you find out that the camera did not zoom properly or anything at all? But these moments cannot be repeated, damn! :-)
Another gorgeous Sunday morning23.10.2016
So if you are looking just for a few little things for your autumn and winter pots, or you need some fruit trees, or you are making a whole new garden knowing that due to high humidity autumn transplanting is the most pleasant for the plants, we have a lot to offer. Come by, we are looking forward to seeing you, all of you! :-)
Lupines13.10.2016
I am always happy to prove that what was written about a new plant on the internet, in its patent, or directly by the breeder is absolute true and that the plant behaves just like it says it should also here in USDA zone 6. Lupines are no exception. Description of many modern varieties says that they should continue blooming until autumn and wonder of wonders: it is true. If you keep feeding them throughout summer and never let them dry out they do produce new flower buds continuously or in several flushes from June until October. Look at our lupine nursery display in early October, isn't it just great?
Lupines13.10.2016
These are plants from the Gallery series, photo taken in June.

Autumn colours and flowers03.10.2016
Our followers know that our aim is to supply plants in such diversity and longevity that your garden can look bright and colourful for twelve months in the year. We do our best to select as many as possible evergreen plants with coloured foliage in winter, shrubs and trees with fantastic colour change in autumn and attractive flowers from spring till autumn, as well as perennials which, if put together ingeniously, can bloom from early spring until late autumn.

I admit that it is not a piece of cake to landscape a garden which will have all these features from the very beginning but give it some time and thought, and always try to leave some space, not filling up the plot to the last square foot. Watch the plants grow and take a good notice of what is missing here and there, places that could be filled with new plants in order to extend the flowering period.

Let me offer you a virtual guided tour of our garden, showing you just those late autumn fragments that might inspire you. You may be surprised how many plants offer that late season coloured show, and possibly how little you need to invest to get something like that into your garden :-) So grab your shoes and a sweatshirt and come on in!
Autumn colours and flowers03.10.2016
For example I love this combination: TOMATO SOUP coneflower, agastache BLUE BOA® (our latest introduction which will be added in a jiffy), and EARLY SUNRISE tickseed. At the top right hand edge of the picture is a little bit of purple pink ROBERT lossestrife. All of them have rich pastel shades which go together very well and you can never go wrong.

Gaura belongs to the longest flowering perennials thanks to which it is often used in pots and throughs in place of annuals. Moreover, as the weather turns colder the leaves change to deep burgundy red which adds drama contrasting with the small, light pink, butterfly-like flowers.

One think I definitely do not wish to omit is our "blue section" :-) This is an important group of plants whose flowers are closest to blue as possible because true blue is almost unthinkable to get in Central Euoropean climate. There are plenty of violet or violet-blue flowering shrubs and vines but very few get so close to blue that we could be persuaded.

Willmott's hardy plumbago shrub is currently at the top of the list since its flowers are true sky blue without compromises. In fact it is not a shrub. It is a shrubby, semi-woody perennial which dies back to the ground every winter and comes back in spring from the roots or its wooden base. It hates winter wet at the roots and loves ful sun and heat. It proved to be reliably hardy in perfectly drained conditions forming a bigger plant year after year. Moreover, in autumn it leaves turn several shades of purple red.

Yellow wood drops leaves early so it also changes colour early. This variety PERKIN'S PINK has soft pink flowers.

Have you noticed that trumpet creepers, too, change their foliage colour? It happens to the varieties with red or deep orange colours such as this Chinese one. I think it is very attractive.

Angelica trees also drop leaves quickly so let's enjoy their colours while they are so beautiful :-) This variety is called simply VARIEGATA.

From our own experience STARED is the first sweetgum variety to change colour in autumn. What a colour!

This vine is not expected to be beautiful - summer or autumn, it is expected to produce sweet and tasty fruit which ripens in autumn. It is ISSAI minikiwi and still needs a couple of weeks to mature. Meanwhile I must admit the golden yellow leaves are worth enjoying :-)
Autumn colours and flowers03.10.2016
Remarkable are evergreen shrubs whose leaves do not fall down yet they change colours. bDavid's photinia is one of them. There are more like this one but their time is yet to come so look forward to them!

Meanwhile go outside and take a good look around your or your friend's garden. Perhaps you will notice things you haven't noticed before. So ejoy and see you soon :-)
Sunday morning25.09.2016
On a quite Sunday morning, when the sun needs time to get warmer but there is plenty of sunshine, I love most strolling through the aisles of trees and among the beds with flowers. They are breathing in and out unaware of how beautiful they are to us. Here is a little appetizer of what's available and most beautiful now - sedums, autumn asters, black-eyed Susan, and of course heather.

September glow23.09.2016
The first autumn day is here and we have eventually had rain. I hope there has been enough water, at least for a while, and that the nature could relieve after hot and dry August. And after the rain there is plenty of sunshine again so the flowering plant shine, too.

I already showed this chaste tree, in fact it was exactly a month ago, still, it is so beautiful that I could not help myself and made a new photo for you to see its beauty.

Also reliable and fool-proof is this "Incrediball" STRONG ANNABELLE® hydrangea. Giant flowers over a long period. Just today a customer landscaper came by - she used them a few weeks for a wedding as a decoration and they were a huge success. And as she did not cut them but left them in pots, after the wedding they transplanted them into the garden. Great idea! :-)
September glow23.09.2016
One of the most amazing novelties of 2016 among perennials is this black-eyes Susan called SUMMERINA™. Stunning and long-lasting flowers and compact habit.

Imagine you find yourself in a gardening quiz show. And the question is "What is it - it is violet blooming, flowers from early summer until frost, has silvery foliage but it is not lavender?". Definitely say perovskia and you win! :-) This is the tall variety and is called BLUE SPIRE.

And if in the next round the question is "What yellow flowering perennial will you use for a damp site?" say ligularia and you are a winner again!
September glow23.09.2016

Lotus-like flowers are firm, very fragrant, always creamy white. Leathery, evergreen leaves have suede-like brown indumentum o the reverse, and Bracken's Brown Beauty boasts with the glossiest foliage of all varieties.

September rose garden02.09.2016
New school year is here and kids have moved from grandmas' gardens to streets, buses, and schools. And those gardens are taking another breath with blossoms of late summer and early autumn out of which roses are very important as they have the ability to bloom until the first frosts.

The first one to catch my eye this time was this immensely beautiful SCHLOSS EUTIN®. It offers a gentle mixture of pale orange, salmon pink, and beige shades, lovely shape and perfume.

Summer blooms22.08.2016
Woody plants flowering in summer are one of our main lines. There are plenty of herbaceous flowers (perennials and annuals) blooming in summer months but garden centres sort of ignore the attractive group of trees and shrubs which offer flowers at times you use your garden at most = in summer.

Chinese wisteria is a climber notorious for its massive spring display of violet purple racemes of fragrant flowers. Moreover, this plant can also bloom in summer. It usually starts in mid July and continues for almost two months. There are not so many flowers but the flower is deeper and the racemes last longer.
Summer blooms22.08.2016
Also it makes lush foliage which is fresh green all summer long.
Summer blooms22.08.2016
Another beauty is tamarisk. Only this species called five-stamen tamarisk produces flowers in summer. They are rich pink and come out in profusion from midsummer. Unlike its spring brother it is quite upright and not leggy. Another name is salt cedar as it is often found and salted seacoast areas beaten by the wind saturated with salt.
Summer blooms22.08.2016
This variety is called PINK CASCADE.
Summer blooms22.08.2016
Chaste tree is another beauty among woody plants blooming in summer. It forms strong upright shrubs with wide crowns, marihuana-like leaves and dark violet flowers which resemble butterfly bush and bloom for as long as 6-8 weeks starting mid August. The whole shrub is very fragrant.

Look into the face,
Look into those eyes,
Look much deeper
To see the beauty
So hidden to those
Who don’t look right.

In one simple flower there is the whole Universe. Its beauty and all secrets. Human is the only creature who does not find it sufficient, and travels long journeys beyond the borders of his soul, to return at the end of his days, finding that all he ever looked for was always here, he just did not know how to look. Look. Open your eyes wider. The beauty is immense and never-ending. Just look. Flowers are just allegory. The best is in our souls.

Perennial of the year 2016: culver's root17.07.2016
You simply can't imagine how thrilled I was learning that the Czech Perennial Society voted culver's root the perennial of this year. Wow, that is great, such a satisfaction. This plant was among my top ten favourites, in fact at the very top of the list when it comes to tall and showy perennials. All the years it seemed a bit overlooked and underused, but now it has the privilege to stand in the spotlight which it duly deserves.

So let's begin the show, shall we? Catwalk, ready? Here we go :-)
Perennial of the year 2016: culver's root17.07.2016
There are two species recognized: north American veronicastrum virginicum and east Asian veronicastrum sibiricum. There is another one mentioned veronicastrum sachalinense which is though believed by many to be a more robust subspecies or even variety of the Asian one.

The difference between two is very small, I would assume it is mainly down to its origin rather that a visual dissimilarity which is fair to admit. We are mainly concerned about further varieties bringing more features to our garden beds.

Fascination is the very first culver's root I ever got and planted in my garden. The name I tells the truth and I do feel fascinated by it as soon as it pushes up stems with leaves in spring let alone the gorgeous flowers in summer.
Perennial of the year 2016: culver's root17.07.2016
Its spike-like flowers are quite long, on well-established plants there are several tiers of them down the stem. Colours present are lilac, mauve, and violet. Somewhat pastel shades yet strong enough to make a statement. Leaves are beautiful, too, and their resemblance to marihuana should not justify any attempt to use them in this manner :-)

It looks stunning in tone-in-tone landscapes just like here - with perovskia in the background.
Perennial of the year 2016: culver's root17.07.2016
Early evening sun will bring romance to everything, its warm light and almost flat rays create fantastic images.
Perennial of the year 2016: culver's root17.07.2016
Our latest addition is this variety named with the same venerational enthusiasm as in the previous case: Adoration. Still, I willingly admit. Same tall spikes, yet botanically correct they are erect racemes, of pure pink colour.

And the last one to show today is Apollo. A blue flowering culver's root which looks more similar to common veronicas thanks to shorter growth and blue flowers.

Indian bean tree - the species
Summer has begun. Totally. Those of you who detest summer heat need to shelter in cellars or air-conditioned areas for a couple of days because until Sunday the forecast promises tropical heatwave. It is midnight now and still 25°C. I love it!

That is why I often used to go to the seaside when I was younger. To enjoy the heat and the trees and flowers of a different climate. Once I met this beautiful tree during my stay on a Greek Island. It grew at a posh entrance to a posh hotel all in white. I could not take my eyes off it every time I passed it on my way to the sea. So on return I began searching and found that it was Frisia variety of a common locust. Very hardy and reliable. So we got it for our garden centre and the tree has been among the top ten best selling trees since.

One thing took me a few years to understand - how come that the tree here is sort of golden-yellow-green while in Greece it was very light yellow-green at the tips of the branches and quite dark green in the centre of the canopy. Browsing all other pictures from that place I once realized what they did - they pruned it hard every spring by so-called pollarding (cutting back the entire crown to some 10-15 cm in late winter in order to achieve rapid new growth and large leaves which will be different at the tips as opposed to those in the centre). They did this with poplars, mulberries and all others and it looked impressive, indeed.

This one is growing in our Prague sample garden and is left to its own devices, no pruning, yet a piece of beauty, what do you reckon?
Summer style25.06.2016
I admit that I was so influenced by Mediterranean style that I began building my garden in Chlumec in the same way - with a touch of exotics and plenty of plants which bloom in summer when we enjoy the garden and swimming pool most.
The biggest attraction of this raised bed is currently this extraordinary desert candle, almost 2m tall with amazing orange flowers. Luckily I managed to protect the flower buds from snails in early spring, otherwise they would have eaten them all like last year.
Even though the flowers have no fragrance they are full of bees.
Similar but much shorter are spike-like inflorescences of this deep blue speedwell.

Well, this topic is not about homo sapiens perfumesis however ambiguous the title might sound. I am not going to produce a catwalk with those you can found in trendy bars and clubs and shopping malls. I am about to make a show of a few shrubs or trees whose fragrance and beauty is so striking that they definitely deserve more attention.

Apart from numerous colours, spring brings a lot of fragrances which exist predominantly in order to attract the right insect to come by and help with pollination. We - humans - do not pollinate anything although we can also smell the plants' fragrance. So in this field (possibly as in many others) we are more likely parasites since we do not often contribute much to their growth. The best we can do is to enjoy the profusion the nature is bringing without damaging it.

Scented lookers09.06.2016
The first one to mention is fringe tree. Its heavily perfumed flowers look like deep cut lace and many customer cannot believe that this is a hardy plant and not a tender member of a rainforest.

The second beauty is Japanese snowbell. I planted this one along the path between the nursery and my house so I can smell in about a hundred times a day. Lovely, mildly spicy yet sweet and strong perfume. Its tiered habit is so difficult to photograph because the plants is very dense and the 3D image the human eye can see can very hardly be documented in a 2D image.

Did you notice, that today we are all white? No particular reason or agenda, I swear. Possibly white brings the strongest perfume. Or just a coincidence, I really haven't got a clue :-)))

And this "AGNES SMITH" Preston lilac is also white and heavily fragrant.

Today's last one to show off is "VENUS" dogwood. So showy and beautiful. Are you saying you have it and never smelled its perfume? Come closer to the flower. It has a light, tea-rose sweet fragrance. In order to be able to smell the shrub from a distance it has to be large and with plenty of flowers.

Second spring25.05.2016
In Czech we have a saying 'The second Christmas' which is used when someone is overwhelmed and pleased about something at the same time, feeling like a kid looking at a Christmas tree with presents in July. So now we have our second spring :-) meaning that we just took in a truckload of new plants and they all look absolutely exquisite! This year's spring was possibly the fastest and heaviest of all as far as sales so we needed to fill in a lot of empty spaces, especially those you expect us to have available in summer such as silk trees, bull bay magnolias or crepe myrtle.

All new arrivals are displayed at our Catalogue and you can make an easy order from there or perhaps make a note of what you like and come by to see them live. Some of them can be sent in parcels but majority is in larger sizes that have to be deliverd in a van or a large car. We can deliver all over the country and Slovakia for you. Here are a few photos of the beauties.

Dwarf heaven22.05.2016
I have a difficult one for you today: how do you visualize Paradise? Considering you are reading this garden blog I would assume you might see a lot of beautiful plants and flowers there, am I right? As for me, I imagine huge plants, taller than me, with large blooms and extreme fruit. Just like in Avatar's jungle. Now how do you think a tiny dwarf, whom my nephew left in my house some time ago, would feel among so many beautiful plants in a rockery? Obviously as in dwarf's paradise! :-)

Now seriously, I would never believe I might like rockeries and their plants so much. I love them! The vibrant colours and shapes, and the thick leaves are just amazing.

New perennials20.05.2016
Look at these beauties. We have brought another load of perennials. Did you know that all of new arrivals you can check in the Catalogue section? While newly added plants are advertised in the News section. So you easily keep track of what's up and new over here. And don't worry - spring has only started so there will be a lot more during the year because we have only potted plants which can be transplanted all season long, even in summer, until late autumn.

Stodůlky wish you a lovely spring morning!29.04.2016
Wishing you a beautiful morning from Prague Stodůlky where spring seems to have come. The temperature is zero above zero :-) which is an excellent start of the day. The wind is gone and the sun is strong as it can be in late April. Will it stay? The next few hours will show. Meanwhile I will show something else - a few picture I managed to make within the past week or so (when it did not snow...).

But this is a real no no. I can understand that not everyone has a large enough garden to accommodate soulangeana type magnolia, so why don't you buy a smaller variety rather than murdering it like this. A deterrent example.

It should look like that. It's a different story, eh?
April - a month of foolish weather16.04.2016
Welcome to our regular occasional called the Photoblog. Usually it glows with colours, is packed with garden tips and hips, and abounds in rare wit. Today, however, all the fun is frozen behind the cold weather brought by the North Sea and changing our cheerful spring feelings to late autumn grind. Well, to be very honest, yesterday’s evening sky promised a sunny Saturday and even though it rain for a good few hours early in the morning, now it looks as if today was going to be a nice start of a happy day!
April - a month of foolish weather16.04.2016
Among the first trees to flower are surely ornamental and wild cherries and plums of all kinds. And Nigra myrobalan is definitely one of the showiest.
April - a month of foolish weather16.04.2016
It has millions of light pink single flowers, followed by rich burgundy red foliage.

It is cold but without frost at night so all of magnolias that are blooming right now escape the danger of frozen petals. This beauty is called Royal Star.

New pictures from our jobs30.03.2016
We often get requests for new pictures of our latest landscaping jobs. Well, you see, it takes time to put it all together and make new pictures at the right time so that BEFORE and AFTER photos look really expressive (or impressive? :-)

So here is our last job of 2015 - it was done in December thanks to very warm beginning of winter. See the entire story here.
First spring walk21.03.2016
Spring is here. Officially. So I went outside to walk my camera a bit. Wow, so many beautiful sights. Here is what I saw.

The first thing to attract my attention was this Japanese apricot 'BENISHIDORE'. Small, rich pink flowers, very fragrant.
First spring walk21.03.2016
This is the crown when the flowers begin to open. Japanese apricot belongs to the very first trees to bloom in early spring or even late winter.
First spring walk21.03.2016
I know you all know them. But admit it - would it be fair to miss this one out?
First spring walk21.03.2016
I did not spend too much time in my own garden this time. Still, I noticed a few interesting things such as the difference between these two shrubby wallflower varieties and their reaction to this year's frost. While 'FRAGRANT SUNSHINE' was almost untouched ...
First spring walk21.03.2016
...'BOWLES MAUVE' showed much of the top growth burnt by sun and frost so a good pruning was necessary. It will be even richer and denser thanks to it.
First spring walk21.03.2016
And having the scissors on hand I pruned trumpet creepers as well. They need it every year.
First spring walk21.03.2016
By the way under the branches of one wallflower 'CLEOPATRA' desert candle is emerging. These young growths need to be protected early in the season from:

a) late frosts (with fir branches, dry straw or similar stuff)

b) early slugs which ate everything last year and we did not have a single flower.
First spring walk21.03.2016
Then I left my garden to inspect neighbours' gardens. Crocus flowers are everywhere. Numerous and beautiful. All shades of golden yellow, purple blue and white.

I am not a fan of conifer gardens but this front yard was quite quite - nice combination of colours and shapes. Well done!
First spring walk21.03.2016
Besides flowers some plants produce attractive foliage in early spring, such as lords-and-ladies, what a name! :-)
First spring walk21.03.2016
It was a day off for me so I did not want to hunt around for more images and headed for the woods where I used to walk all my life. I was looking forward especially to my favourite spot. Meanwhile I saw many periwinkles on the way rising their violet blue flowers from evergreen carpets of deep green foliage.
First spring walk21.03.2016
This is it. This is the most beautiful spot I love and I have been coming to for almost 35 years.
First spring walk21.03.2016
And as the sun warmed up the paths I kicked off my shoes and walked barefoot. On the rustling, dry oak leaves as well moss, simply amazing. Try that! The rest of the day belonged only to me so here my today's photoblog ends.

Take care and see you soon!
Eventually warmer days are here18.03.2016
Do you also feel so grateful for the last couple of days filled with sun and the blue sky above? I do. In spite of the forecast for the coming week or when the temperature won't reach today's 10-13°C let's be happy for 8-10°C, won't we?

And right into these wonderful days of very early spring we brought a packed truckload of azaleas, mountain laurels, and lily-of-the-valley shrubs. So beautiful and some of them quite sizeable. This pretty one is called 'VALLEY ROSE' and it smells beautiful :-)
Eventually warmer days are here18.03.2016
This one is 'FOREST FLAME' - still in buds.
Eventually warmer days are here18.03.2016
Ad the third one today has variegated foliage and is called 'FLAMING SILVER'. It looks best after the flowers have faded and new leaves emerge - they are striking pink for quite some time.
We are open!07.03.2016
Yes, we are open. Not that we would have been closed - thanks to our shop with organic fruit and veg we are open all year round now. It is just that we began taking in new goods so the spring can come. And it is approaching slowly, without any extremes of daily heat and morning freeze. Very nice, indeed.

Primrose is called petrklíč in our language and it means Peter's Key. According to our calendar, St.Peter's holiday is on 22nd February when primrose can hardly show any flowers. So why the name? God knows. Still, primrose is a typical early spring flower so growers try hard to breed and force the most beautiful ones in order to get them ready for the opening weeks of all garden centers in early March.
We are open!07.03.2016
We were busy already in late February. Good weather enabled us to stock in a lot of new plants, primarily evergreen shrubs and trees of various colours and sizes. They come from the best nurseries we have been dealing with for years now and we are always so happy about their quality. There are also many new conifers as well as deciduous shrub and trees which are only waiting for the right moment to emerge.
We are open!07.03.2016
Opening times have not changed:

Prague - all week long, 9 a.m. till 7 p.m. incl. all holidays

Chlumec - Monday till Saturday, 9 a.m. till 6 p.m., incl. all holidays except Sundays
We are open!07.03.2016
One more flower I want to show a picture of - violet. This one is yellow, still, it is a flower that blooms for incredible period of time - spring through autumn and can take some frost.

So do you know what flowers, shrubs or trees you will need this spring? Not yet? Never mind, come by and have look around our garden centre. You will surely come across something nice that will be pretty in your garden.
Coming closer ...17.02.2016
Spring is approaching. Even though today it looked like Christmas especially in the north where streets were covered with 10 cm of fresh snow and drivers could practice their patience in queues in front of numerous accidents.

Never mind. By the evening the snow melted and we can enjoy rising temperature which is supposed to peak early next week at about 12-13°C. Meanwhile look at these witch hazels. They are usually among the very first to show that winter is almost over. Jelena is regularly the first to flower in my garden and when the temperature is above zero and the sun is out it releases a wonderful fragrance.

January garden04.02.2016
Just as the month of January was almost done there was a beautiful afternoon with soft orange light. Obviosuly there was no other way but to take my camera out for compulsory walkies. The photos came out very nice - you can even notice the deeper and somewhat warmer colours on the plants thanks to sun's rosy cheeks giving the countryside such a pleasant feeling.

There was me, out in the garden, walking and looking around, when I got an idea - instead of showing you pictures of large shrubs or evergreen trees as usual at this time of year, why not introducing the small ones - evergreen perennials and small subshrubs such as hebe or leucothoe. Plus an extra image, where it makes sense, when in flower during the growing season so you get the whole picture of what the plant is about.

This first beauty is a male fern. A few tips of the leaves gain coppery orange colour in winter. Nice, eh?
January garden04.02.2016
Another evergreen fern I like is this Japanese Rosy Buckler fern. In winter is it so nice and green, and in spring and once again in midsummer ...

... it makes these beautiful new salmon orange fronds .

... and makes purple flowers and if the winter is mild it can continue blooming until the first deep frost (below -10°C), sometimes all winter long.

Hebes make lovely features in small gardens. Especially those like James Stirling whose colour I do not dare to define :-)
January garden04.02.2016
Green-leaved hebes are pretty, too, of course. Like for example this box-leaved hebe with fragrant flowers.
January garden04.02.2016
Or do you prefer blue shades? Here is one: Cobb Valley.
January garden04.02.2016
Coral bells is an entirely different group of evergreen beauties. Their leaves are large and colourful and change shades for winter. We try to keep their assortment on our website quite sober to keep ourselves from overloading with the numerous varieties currently available. Yet every now and then we upload an interesting one on our website to keep our offer varied and wide. This one is called Marmalade. It really fits!
January garden04.02.2016
And the reverse of leaves is possibly even more interesting.

Georgia Peach is totally salmon pink even in winter.
January garden04.02.2016
Well, I have not made many pictures of leucothoe in the end as I am checking this folder. So at least one, my favourite Royal Ruby.

Have a lovely late winter time and go outside looking for some small evergreens to appreciate beauty of those hardy gems that keep the gardens looking pretty even in cold months of the year.
Making of sand Tibetan mandala 24.01.2016
I know that this does not really relate to garden or landscaping at all but I would like to share my today's experience. There have been two Tibetan lamas (monks) visiting our town this week, making an original sand mandala Čenrezig during the Shangri-La Exhibition. You may have heard of mandalas and seen some since they are becoming increasingly popular even in pop culture, still these mandalas are the old spiritual ones, showing Buddhist symbols in an ornament which has a huge spiritual impact on every human, irrespective of his belief.

I was so much looking forward to this as I had only seen it on TV before. But watching these calm and smiling lamas making it live was an unforgettable experience. I chose the last day of making for my visit and I wished I could stay until it was finished. I did! And I left my camera at home. Thanks to modern technologies mobile phones have cameras, too :-)
Making of sand Tibetan mandala 24.01.2016
I must admit that lighting in the room was crucial and very well thought of. While the corners of the room were quite shady the centre with mandala was lit up with two spotlights the way that the mandala was glowing like a stained glass transilluminated with strong sunlight. It was amazing to watch the black board turn colourful and three-dimensional.
Making of sand Tibetan mandala 24.01.2016
Same amazing was to watch lamas during the making. They were so peaceful, calm, smiling or concentrated when doing something really tiny. Even stronger feeling I had when one of them came just in front of me to finish the circle frame. His energy was tangible.
Making of sand Tibetan mandala 24.01.2016
I was curious to find out how they manage to keep the desktop clean all the time. I soon found out - with a standard painters brush. No hand shaking, 100% concentration and clean work.

Making of sand Tibetan mandala 24.01.2016
I tell you the truth - I had no idea at the beginning whether I would stay till the end. The first feelings were like "won't it be boring watching this when very little is made every few minutes?". But something made me sit down after a while and I started to feel peaceful. Same energy that the two monks were emitting. It was lovingly contagious.

And when the outer ring was being finished and so was the whole mandala I felt that only now the whole picture got energy, as if it started turning round. And when there was the last piece to be made my heart began beating faster for no reason. And in a few minutes the work was done ...

And it is finished.

Perhaps I have not seen something so beautiful in my life.

They say that only by looking at the old spiritual mandala, without any explanation to the symbols, the divine sparkle rises in each and every one of us. So let's look and let the sparkle burn :-) Have a lovely time!
