This is one of the flowers on my ‘Edge of Joy’, Jane. I have two plants and they’ve both been slow to get going this year, producing only one flower at a time, but there are loads of buds on both plants. I’ll post more in due course. @pelly #dahlia #dahlia-edgeofjoy #containergarden 💚

#dahliaday My two ‘Edge of Joy’ plants haven’t been as prolific this year probably because I left them in their pots over winter and didn’t enrich the compost enough once they began to grow. I’ve been a bit lax with feeding, too, so I must do better next year! 😂🤞 #dahlia #dahlia-edgeofjoy #containergarden #whiteandpink #mygardentoday 💚

@jacaranda. Hi Barbara a lot of my plants come back every year now, l don't have a big garden, l live in a council bu galow so you can imagine how small it is, that is why l love to see gardens like yours and all the lovely plants you. I do both really, l do buy seeds and l do often make cuttings, but l don't really buy the plugs now, l use to but l don't bother with them now. I do sometimes have some plants of qvc, which are very good. I should have shares in that place, keep recommending,

@jacaranda. I love the plant feed, can't recommend that enough, l switch over from my other feed to that this year and l have had double the amount of produce

I left my two ‘Edge of Joy’ plants in their terracotta pots over winter. They were outside in a sheltered place, definitely not frost free, and it doesn’t seem to have done them any harm. This is the first flower, but it’s nothing like yours, Carol. 😳 I wonder what the next ones will be like 🤔 @carolgs #dahlia #dahlia-edgeofjoy #containergarden #firstflower #mygardentoday

It's still pretty love the little white flecks in it, I leave all mine planted out over winter (I'm too lazy to dig them up) the next ones will be different again still beautiful though
