Good evening good folk of GT! After an infestation of whitefly, a bit of a trim, and a few weeks of regeneration, my #dahlia 'Nuit D'Ete' is forming new flower buds! Just hope there's enough summer left for the flowers to mature! 😀 #macro

Oh dear! Wind and rain last night really gave these #dahlia blooms a bit of a beating! At least they'll last a little bit longer in a vase indoors! 😀

@janric @harebell - Thank you both! I was gutted when I walked out onto the patio this morning, but at least these are the only casualties so far, and like you say, they don't look too shabby in the vase! 😀

@christineb - Thankfully I got to them before the rain pelted all of the petals into oblivion! 😀

@lamaisonbleueoleron - Dahlias have that effect on me too! This one grows over 1m tall so needs a bit of space! 😀

Oh yes I started with 2 a couple years back and now grown to 14 dahlias collection and growing all seem to like it here so far 👍They all stand above the 1.2m even when I've given them a little Chelsea chop 🙈 I'll definitely find a place for this one 😊👌
