I’m led to believe that this one’s a bit temperamental, Simon. Have you had any problems with it? 🤔

@jacaranda out of all my Dahlias excluding the one the dog decapitated! This was the last to flower. I put it in a less sunny place by my shed which has no gutter. I had to cover it and in rich the soil so it wouldn't get too damp and eaten by slugs. Dry summer has probably had a good effect as still moist soil. Fluke I think rather than good gardening. On the whole not too bad I'd say!
