Welcome to the website "Ornamental Garden Litavrina Gennady"

  • Dear friends ! In 2011, our Garden turns 30 years old, and for almost twenty of them we have been growing and shipping flower crops all over Russia. At this point, there was an urgent need to create a website. Since in the collection of a huge number of different plants, it becomes more and more difficult to deal with the choice. At the request of our customers and in connection with the anniversary date of our Garden, we decided to create a website dedicated to our favorite family of the whole family, the creative place, Sadu, where everything flows, everything changes. I would like to call my Garden precisely with a capital letter, because it is a living organism, the Garden to which we give all our free time, the Garden, which gives us a lot of positive emotions, pleases with endless flowering and transfers from our reality to another world full of unexpected colors and discoveries, constantly something surprising.
  • I had a love for flowers since childhood, but we did not have a summer house and then it was only indoor flowers that filled the whole apartment. In the spring of 1981, my parents received a garden plot and started building a house. I immediately went to the garden. Fruit trees, shrubs, annual asters and some gladioli were planted. Well, of course, not without a garden. I gladly took all the land affairs on myself, trying to involve my wife and parents as little as possible. It seemed to me that they would not do everything the way I would have done. But of course, I did not cope alone. And I am very grateful for their help, grateful to my parents for what I was allowed to do in the Garden whatever I wanted. I found support and help and complete understanding in everything. In our passion for gardening and horticulture, we went through all the stages of development. They grew extraordinary tomatoes (a wonderful collection was collected from more than 30 varieties), potatoes were grown only by varieties, avoiding re-grading, and also carried away the cultivation of onions from seeds (chernushki) for one season. Moreover, the bulbs reached 300-400 grams. This was the mom's merit. She fed him weekly and loosened it. But the love of flowers gradually led to a reduction in the area allotted for the garden and berries. And that moment came when only flowers, ornamental and fruit trees and bushes reigned in the garden.
  • It used to be very difficult to acquire any interesting new plant, you can write entire stories about it and it was a real holiday when I returned from another trip to all the markets of Moscow with something new and long desired, or with an infinite number of bags coming back from a trip in Riga, where floriculture has always been more developed than in Russia, and the range was pleasantly pleased. It was from there that we brought our first rhododendrons, which grew into large bushes and now they are already 23 years old. The issue price, of course, did not matter. Many of these plants to this day make me happy, no less than newly acquired new products, which are now, of course, much easier to get.
  • Today, our Garden is a creation completely created by me and my wife Elena Viktorovna. Many highly ornamental plants are grown in the Garden, most of which are not demanding to care, there are certainly sissies, but it is also interesting to tinker with them and achieve a flowering plant that is unusual for our places. Most importantly, the plants are grown in our suburbs and are fully adapted for growing in the middle lane. The garden is in bloom when the last snow is still lying and the flowering also ends on the first snow. Some plants go under the snow with flowers.
  • In my hobby for flowers, my preferences for one or another color are constantly changing. Therefore, the collection is very diverse, and the cultivation of different plant species is not an easy task. For example, I did not like phloxes and believed that they would never be in the Garden at all. Thanks to my wife, I took a different look at these plants. And today it is one of my favorite colors. I was fascinated by the real collecting of these wonderful plants, I especially want to collect a complete collection of smoky varieties, as well as the best of the best of both old breeders and the latest new breeding. They are also fascinated by new varieties of hydrangeas, unusual liver cells, and as my mom said that I want to collect plants from all over the world, which is actually happening and there is no way to stop!
  • Currently, I am a member of the ROLF (Russian Society of the Lovers of Phlox) and the Moscow Flower Club. We hope that our large collections, information and photographic materials will be interesting for many amateur florists. For photo materials, see the “Photo Gallery” section; for ordering seed materials, please refer to the “Checkout” section. Yours faithfully, Litavrins Gennady Borisovich and Elena Viktorovna.
