Ladybird, Orieller did state that the labels were not for the plants shown so Echium was a suggestion of what they might be.

Dahlias in Devon - in the ground or not?

Posted: 28/10/2016 at 09:23

I live in Devon and I left them in the ground last year.

I cut them down after the first frost , mulched the bed with well rotted leaf mouldy and then covered with garden fleece . They were fine and even stronger in growth than previous years when I have lifted.

they are in a well draining bed but I do live on the edge of Dartmoor so the weather can be quite severe.

I'm glad you liked the photos Aym80

the acer is growing in a large pot because my soil is very alkaline so I have to feed it regular during the growing season, I use a ericacious feed and top dress it in the spring with ericacious compost. As for the size the acer is quite a few years old you have to be patient.
