I bought 2 from Cornwall holiday (which turned into being a Cornwall tour of gardens and garden centres!!!! Ooops at 32 stone would say it should have been beaches and bars) they are called dahlia gallery Rivera. They have flowered their hearts out. I hope they are fertile and I can keep them through the winter!

I only ask as my tiny dahlia had tiny tiny seeds and I sowed 2 trays and nothing at all,nothing!!!

my new red ones I so hope are fertile but normally they close into a cone shape, these remain looking like pineapple tops?? Heard this before??

Think the carrot sandy mix will be bagged up over winter and used for potatos when I have added some fish and bone stuff I bought today.

the beans compost will go for next years carrots.

 

the potato and tomato will mulch round my beds?? How does that sound? Anything that is left I will add more new compost to and use for French beans.

I found some 3" pots so now have 32 lupins in those. Operation pansies on Monday when I have gathered some modular pots from friends and family.
