On late night, impulsive slug hunt and discovered a favourite old dahlia almost flattened by the storms last night. It's at the top of the garden so missed it earlier.
Will stake it tomorrow.....hopefully it will be fine. ,
Usually I put quite thick poles around this one and double twine as it is big and needs stromg support. It's a blowsy old pink but I have grown fond of it over the years. It's in a stoney rough part of the garden......would be difficult to remove it now......but does make a nice focal point for several weeks.
