Flowers we don't like?

Another vote for dahlias

Very heady scent of lilies as they start to turn also makes me ill.

I alo prefer flowers when still alive - though if I ever have cut flowers in the house, it;s usually around my birthday (next week) as I adore yellow spring bulbs, mimosa and anything springlike and bright yellow (husband, take note)


Things you did in the garden as a kid which were extremely bad!

Send me a link Paul, so I can see where you are based - thank you, would love to visit when you re-open.

My garden is a very small urban patch, but the soil is rich clay and free draining, so roses love it and grow very well here.
