Mrs Garden, well all dahlias are tender. However the Bishop is as tough as they come. Here they are happy in the ground all year round but perhaps you should dig it up and divide it in autumn....2 plants next year then
been busy planting my nephew's garden. New build with concrete everywhere. Had to replant stuff they put in because nothing was planted properly. Bloomin' hard work. Also planted camelia, salvia Amistad, large pieris, dahlias, penstemons, and a load of other stuff. Everything was planted up against the fence and wall. Looks pretty good now, I think. Will plant an acer for them too against a sheltered white wall. They provided lunch for me when I said "feed me. Feed me" and mock doubledup. Well, I was hungry!
Warm dry day
