Looking to grow dahlia Clair de lune.  Anyone growing this?  

Want to plant up a yellow and blue border over the winter.  Want subtle yellows and prob just pale blues and this dahlia looks so classy

These arum lilies are easy to grow......bit shade and moist soil is best.  I have even grown them in the pool.  They will grow in sun but then require more moisture

Here they are hardy so maybe you could throw a fleece over them in cold of winter.

They are easy to split.....I just dig them up and pull apart or chop/slice off and plant ASAP.

They might flower again this year...*its been such an odd season so who knows?  Cut off flowered stems and remove any yellowed or dead leaves.  Tidy it up.  Feed. Water. 

These plants are best in shade.....they light up dark corners.  Plant with lobelias like queen Victoria for wonderful foliage and flower contrast and they like exactly the same comditions

Good Evening FORKERS

Dove, just a reminder.  You're retiring soon, dont forget.

Swiss sue...some heavy rain and flood damage in some places but it's been lovely today

You deserve some rest gardening have been working hard

Been so busy at foodbank today but we have almost run out of food.  Mostly it's good but we were caught out today by couple of scammers.  They used vouchers in different foodbanks somehow amd each for families of 10 so they did well.  We know them now so they will get nothing more.  I even trollied their supplies to their car for them!!!   Doesn't put me off though cos most of the families need this help
