This is now my first vlog post! I’ve been thinking of adding videos to Cameragardening for quite a while. I’ve done videos for others, in Finnish, but these three videos, that show how to do Christmas arrangements are the first ones I’ve done in English.

    Good morning,
    I’m a rosarian. My mother (Mrs. Helen Surina) was working with Mrs. Dzidra Rieksta. They were collegue and met in the Moscow Botanical garden in 70-90s.
    Now I am writing the text for landskape magazine about roses for parks. And same D. Rieksta’s hybrids will be mentioned too.
    I am also interested to buy some varaeties for my nurseries.
    Could you be so kindly to get me an idea how to find Mrs Dzidra?
    Kind regards,
    Ksenia SurinaReplyCancel

      Kind Regards, HenrikaReplyCancel

The Magnolia genus is another plant family that manages to take my breath away. You can only grow a few magnolias in Southern Finland, so I treasure the ones I have very dearly. My best magnolia is Magnolia kobus var. borealis, Magnolia ‘Leonard Messel’ does quite well and my mother has a ‘Merrill’ that shows […]

As Irises might just be my favorite plant genus, I just thought I could add a compilation gallery of the iris pictures I’ve published on this blog. I addition there a few new ones from this summer!
