Our creative adventure began in 1999, a new house and a bare plot. We were part of the NGS family for 10 years. Now we’re sitting back and relaxing!

‘Penhill Watermelon’ is so late to flower this year! Let’s hope the warmer weather that’s been promised for later in the week will encourage more buds to open. 🤞 #dahliaday #dahlia #dahlia-penhillwatermelon #jacarandacuttinggarden #latebloomer 💚

This is the tallest #dahlia I’ve ever grown and I’m amazed that given the size of the flowers it doesn’t topple over 😂 #dahlia-penhillwatermelon #enormous #dinnerplatedahlia #jacarandacuttinggarden #mygardentoday 💚

This one is really tall and the flowers can get huge, but so far this year I haven’t had one as big as a dinner plate! (Swipe left to see last year’s photo!!!) #dahlia #dahlia-penhillwatermelon #jacarandacuttinggarden #mygardentoday 💚

This was growing in #mygardentoday but then we had a huge downpour 🌧🌧🌧 and it toppled over 😢 At least I get to enjoy it indoors now 😍 #dahlias #dahlia-penhillwatermelon #stormdamage 17/10/2019

The flower is so heavy that the stem couldn’t support it 😢 Photographed on a 10inch plate to show how huge it is! #dahlia #dahlia-penhillwatermelon #jacarandacuttinggarden #mygardentoday 11/09/2019

With a flower as big as this today has to be #fabulousfriday 😍 Another #newtome #dahlia which certainly hasn’t been a disappointment. It’s sturdy and tall, standing just under 6ft! #jacarandacuttinggarden #mygardentoday 23/08/2019
