Garden Diary

Impressions in change of the seasons

Lush green, delicate blossoms

A dense green carpet, woven from a wide range of colours and leaf structures, covers the ground of our front garden on this misty morning.

A greenhouse packed with seedlings

To extend the season and give the seedlings an easier start under controlled, optimised conditions, we start most of our vegetable crops and cut flowers from seed indoors.

The joy of spring

This year everything is different, a good three weeks earlier. While we are still busy preparing the beds, everything around us is blooming and turning green.

Fog and hoarfrost

For us, the cold season is at its most beautiful when the soft snow is joined by hoarfrost, which coats even the finest twigs, leaves or dried berries in icy crystals.

Golden Winter

While most changes in the garden happen more or less leisurely over the course of the seasons and blend seamlessly into one another, snow completely transforms the landscape from one moment to the next.

Winter wreath

Frosty sparkle

The first frost seems to preserve the last splashes of autumn colour under its sparkling ice crystals.

Autumn leaves

We would love to stop time in autumn, when trees and bushes shine in the most beautiful colours.

Cut flower bed in morning mist

The mornings when the rising sun pushes aside dense fog with all its might are one of the most beautiful things about autumn for us.

September mowing

With the mowing of our wildflower meadows at the latest, the farewell to summer becomes very clear.

Transformation of the new perennial beds

It is amazing what a few square metres of change can do to the overall appearance of the garden.
