Dahlia ‘Pooh’ shows its face!

By   June 18, 2012

Unbelievably, and against all the usual rules, our horribly mistreated Dahlia Pooh plants – so called because they are so attractive to bees – that haven’t been lifted and carefully stored overwinter, but remained in tyres on the pavement, have decided that they love life and the first flower has shone out through the rain, as early as the first week of June. I wonder whether the black tyres have in fact provided a warm and safe haven over the winter, that has helped the plants not only survive, but start flowering early!  All good news!

It would be lovely to hear about any other flowering successes from the groups.
