Dahlias

I have grown Dahlias from seed, and this year they flowered quite well. I had them in pots and couple of the pots I just plunged into the ground in my front garden. I have taken them in now and hopefully they will reward me again next year.

Storing Fucshias

Posted: 23/10/2012 at 18:13

I've got quite a few Fuchsias and over winter mine in a heated greenhouse, the tempreture is is kept above freezing. I let the leaves yellow and then remove them and any dead flowers. I do cut them back slightly and water them sparingly over the winter so that the compost doesnt completly dry out. If the winter is really cold I put fleece over them as well. Mine are now all in the greenhouse for the winter. I have started two new standards this year, I just love them, they are such a joy to grow and so easy to take cuttings to get new plants.

I really love the Autumn, such beautiful colour. I still have Fuchsias in flower and I purchased some lovely chrysanthemums from Lidl just the other day and they are looking really lovely. And you are righ lovetogarden, it does get better every day.

Exhibition vases

Posted: 18/10/2012 at 17:43

Hi Try this web site http://www.close2real.nl/index.php/assortiment they are in Holland. They do do vases and there is an email address to contact them. I do know the shop next door to them deals in a lot more in vases but I afraid I can't remember the name. I have been there and it is a fantasic shop. I know its not in this country but I hope this helps.

when should I prune Buddleia ?

I agree with jo4eyes, I do exactly the same. Mine are in two large pots and really do well. I have had them for about ten years and they flower every year.

After seeing these on Gardeners World last week, I would really love to have a go at growing these. They look so pretty and delicate dancing about in the breeze. I will be honest, I haven't really given them a lot of thought before, but after seeing them on GW I would love them in my garden.
