Thank you  Verdun 

Dream Potting Shed

I would love to have one of those shepherds huts.  Carol Klein has one at the bottom of her garden.  You can have a small wood burner, a stove, small fridge, somewhere to sit and look through your old gw mags looking out across the garden and ponder what you will plant next season.

Ahh, dreams - just need to win the lottery

A question about the cuttings though.  Mine are about 10 inches tall, have not flowered but are good healthy bushy plants.  What do I do in the winter, do I leave them in the pots, not sure if such small plants have tubers yet or not.  I always overwinter tubers in the greenhouse but first year I have grown cuttings.

Beautiful.  I am a newly converted dahlia lover, used to hate them but now love them.  They give that much needed late colour.  I took lots of cuttings early this year so am increasing my stock, but will be a while before I have such a good collection as yours. 

Love them

I have flowers this year but not nearly as big as they usually are.  I have put it down to the hot summer.  They like lots of water.

Why not send an email to David Austin customer services to ask for their advice, it may be something that is known to that certain rose and they may give you advice.

Ok thanks fidget.

Today I feel so happy....

I, too, am a very happy gardener.  What a glorious summer we have had, lots of sun and a little rain to keep us ticking over.  The garden is looking beautiful - even my 10 yr old neice who visited yesterday commented on the garden looking very colourful.  I grew lots of cosmos this year and have been very pleased with them, they just keep on flowering and the bees love them.
