Well it is intermittent-still keeping an eye out for the woman that calls every few days-it is probably a stuck ball cock or something-no sniggering at the back please

I keep seeing adverts for Love Film direct to your computer-how does that work?

Begonia looks odd !

Yes-it is fine-you might find next year it will squatter-perhaps make it a central feature in a larger container?

I think it will do well in the shade

Talkback: How to lift and store dahlias

Susan O'Meara wrote (see)

Hello! I am new to GW. Today I lifted 6 dahlia tubers from my pots. They were bought as small bedding plants in May and I am amazed at the size of the tubers. I have washed them and will dry and store.  What I want to ask is am I wasting my time as the plants flowered first time then made loads of buds which didn't open. I suspect Thrips or some virus. Will this affect the tubers and the health of the plants next year? They look marvellous so I hope not.

I doubt that it was either-this should not affect the tubers-lack of sun and warmth has been the problem this year-they are not native to this country but originate in Mexico which explains a lot

I don't think it needs sun-far from it- oop north don't they force it in shed-and then you can buy pots to go over then to get the first tender sticks

You do realise from past conversations you are in this for the long haul?

Have you sown your seeds?

They are growing sideways

It is the smaller female flowers-not male- you are supposed to remove to get a bigger flower-frankly I don't bother

It may be as Alina says just the variety or lack of light

The trailing one was not what I expected-it looks fine to me.

I don't think you have anything to worry about
