'Of course I know all their names' I say.
And I do, honestly - it's easy while Dahlias have such an array of flowers. Many colours, shapes & sizes, all easy(ish) to identify.
But soon the frost will come & I'll cut the wet, blackened stems down to the ground.
Not so easy to be 100% sure which muddy tuber is which when dug up & prepared for storage.
I spent a quiet hour yesterday among the Dahlias, checking every plant still has a clearly written label. I replaced any missing ones.
A real 'stitch in time' job.
If you have a growing collection of Dahlias, you'll be glad you took time for this next Spring.
