And so another season of Dahlias began again in July - woohoo!
I began cutting a few white stems early in the month but this was the first real colour pop.
Most of the plants are still fairly short because of the long dry spell. After recent rain, they'll soon catch up & be pumping out the blooms until October.
And yes, I'm growing rather a lot again this year in a wide range of shapes & colours.
From huge frilly confections to the tiniest buttons (just perfect for buttonholes & bud vases).
I grow more Dahlias here at the Flower Farm than any other plant group. They really are the most varied & exciting group of plants imho.
Our Dahlias will be appearing in many Galloway celebrations, bouquets & events in the coming months.
