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!

I bought this in 2017 and in that year the first flower appeared at the end of June. In subsequent years it has begun flowering in mid-July but this year’s the latest it has ever been. It’s worth waiting for, though, and there are many buds just about to open! ❤️ #dahlia #dahlia-maryevelyn #jacarandacuttinggarden #latebloomerin2021 #mygardentoday 💚

The first #dahlia of 2019 and one of the few tubers I managed to successfully overwinter! Even the newly purchased tubers have taken an age to get going so at this rate I’ll be getting a really late display. Let’s hope there are no early frosts! 🤞 #mygardentoday 06/07/2019

Yesterday I had happy hydrangeas and today I have Delightful Dahlias! Finally I have two flowers on ‘Mary Evelyn’, an overwintered tuber from last year. #dahlia #firstflowers #maroonflowers #mygardentoday 31/07/2018

I’m amazed that it got through the winter, Rich, as it was left in an unheated greenhouse with no special protection. It’s a really strong plant so I’m hoping for lots more flowers over the coming weeks. @richard.spicer.7906

This caught my eye just now. The #dahlia petals have just fallen off revealing a beautiful centre and a star-shaped backing. #mygardentoday #natureatitsbest
