Got away with the first Frost scare of the season last night.
Yesterday morning, weather forecast a low of 7degrees - no problem. 7pm - forecast low of 5 degrees. As it was still & very clear, I decided not to take a chance.
When temperatures drop that fast it COULD just catch the Dahlias if it fell more.
Ken & I had a mad rush to cover lightly with fleece. Not the easiest job in the near dark with head torches!
Experience has shown if we can mollycoddle them through a few cold September nights, they'll bloom well into October.
So checking the weather today - looks safe for tonight but I'm keeping that fleece handy.
Good news is this means we'll have plenty for the 'Friday Flowers' this week & to take to Kirkcudbright Farmers Market on Sunday 26th September. There are a lot of buds under there.
Let me know if you would like to order a bunch. Email Me
