The flower we grow in greatest numbers is the Dahlia.
I adore their diversity & sheer flower power for months on end.
Within one family of flowers there are so many shapes, so many colours & they just keep on giving masses of stems for cutting.
Last year our total Dahlia plants topped 600. It was a pretty disastrous year for me as I broke my arm & 'only' about 400 were planted out in the field. But all the others were potted up & fed so the tubers kept on growing, ready for their moment this year.
The Dahlias are sold in our Bouquets, bunches & even by the bucket (preordering essential). The large Funeral Spray arrangement above was made for a September Funeral, without floral foam.
I dry Dahlias too & use them in dried bouquets & wreaths during the winter months.
I eastimate we might just top the 800 plants - buckets & buckets of beautiful blooms to look forward to!
To order Dahlias to arrange yourself, send an email. The Dahlia season is from mid-July to September (depending as always on the weather!)
