Dahlias

  16110 001 16110 003
I never used to like Dahlias much, but my friend, Don, bought me some bulbs and Ive become a little bit fascinated by them. They remind me of Chrysanthemums, they look a little bit Chinese and these huge showy flowers manifest from little bulbs. They dont really fit with all of my other plants, but I have realised thats its a great pleasure to watch the development of flowers, when you go outside to inspect your garden. Another friend cant believe how much time I spend inspecting my plants.But for me, that is the best part!

Hi Robbie, the beauty is they come in all shapes and sizes. We are not into the dinner plate variety, but are fond of the less elaborate ones, i.e. the singles

I have never used Dahlias either, but I do think they are beautiful. Maybe I need to try...
