Hello dear friends,
It’s been a while since I shared my garden with you and thought you might like to see what it’s doing at this time of the year so i’ve been snap happy!
As you can see it’s in a faded state with the dahlias flopping over and the petals tinged slightly by the frost we had the other day, I won’t lift them until the leaves have really blackened, that is also the time I plant my spring bulbs. I always leave it late to plant them as I like to of had a good frost to of killed any bugs/viruses that are in the soil.
This year saw me planting our whole dahlia collection at home instead of the allotment and I panic rammed them in with no rhyme or reason, next year I plan on being more organised and they have two dedicated beds and then I will dot a few into the boarders. I’m also re-designing the rose bed next year to include some light perennials which I will be able to cut from but will also give the bed interest throughout the year, but more of that in spring.
