It’s Bingerden This Year

Bingerden Collection 2011

Gardening is a lust, a pleasure, a disease. Once you received the Green Spirit there is really no turning back. That’s why we’ve put the International Bingerden Nursery Days on the calendar again. Let’s spend some money on special varieties that only a few possess…

The International Bingerden Nursery Days are held from Friday June 15th till Sunday June 17th 2012 and is open from 10am to 6 pm.

Which fairs and garden shows do you go to?

Perennials Rule

It’s been four years now that we’ve been working in this garden. The first year it was a war zone destroying the nettles and getting some shape in the garden. The second year we enjoyed the sowing and found out the hard way that the power of weeds are much stronger than that of delicate seeds. In the third year we started to reconsider our approach with planting in open soil. With the amount of unwanted seeds and roots in the soil, we needed to do something dramatic.

Now it’s year four and we start to see some final shapes. Perennials rule. We’ve created 9 unique flower beds with each it’s own theme. From Brunnera to Bingerden, from white to red and from Spring to Autumn. Only 2 to go and we’re ready for the seasons.

Supergites’ Garden Inspiration on Pinterest

This month I’ll be planting the white border. I finally discovered a benefit of the new thing on the web; Pinterest.

On Pinterest I’m gathering all sorts of images to describe what the border will look like and mention all flowers that I’ve already been preparing in a seeding tray like garden Cosmos and Leucanthemum.

In one glance you’ll get the picture of how the Supergites garden might look like this Summer. Soon I’ll be searching for the Yellow border, the Hollyhock section and the Vineyard 🙂
