Our creative adventure began in 1999, a new house and a bare plot. We took a break from NGS openings in 2021/22 but we’ll be back in 2023!

A year ago today I posted a photo of ‘Honka Black’ as it was the first #dahlia to flower. History is now repeating itself as it’s the first one to flower in 2022! Last year I wasn’t sure if I liked it but this year I know I do, especially as the tuber was accidentally left in the raised bed over winter and has survived! You’ve got to love a survivor, haven’t you? 😂😂 #dahlia-honkablack #jacarandaraisedbed #survivor 💚

You've had a long wait Barbara, mine has been in flower for a month now but unlike you I'm still on the fence with it. I just can't make my mind up 🤔🙄😂

The petals on this one aren’t as twisted as they were last year, Jane, so it doesn’t look quite so weird! It will be interesting to see how it develops over the coming weeks. 🤔 @pelly

My flowers aren't as good as usual and are only lasting a day. I think the heat affected them 🤔

It’s a beauty! But it’s definitely an acquired taste 😛

The colour is lovely but the petals look a bit as if they were dying, so I'm with you - not sure
