And here is the other one, don't know the name. It didn't flower much last year, but there's already lots of buds so fingers crossed I'll get lots this year 🤞🏼

Hope so Nessa! All the new tubers I planted seem to be doing well too and a couple have nice big buds on! Can't wait! 😬 @nessas

Hmm...🤔 another plant that seems to have changed since I planted it. Top pic when I bought it, bottom pic this morning. Where has the orange gone and the frilly petals? They're much smaller flowers too! Not a happy bunny, it will be coming out again 😏

Oh what a shame. It looks like two different plants 😔😔😔

😈😂 Well as you know Jayne I'm not keen on either yellow or orange, but thought this was pretty and would go just nicely in the yellow/orange bed...it was quite soft looking. Now it just looks all brash and cheap! Don't like it all all! In fact that's the second plant from the same GC that's done this, I think I'll mention it to them @jaynehynesburton

I've in the past fig plants up and taken them back to the garden centre for a refund and often had no reciept, think you should try it as plants aren't cheap, 😬

Lots of my plants have changed this year🤔🤔 maybe the wind has caused cross pollination!

@rachelbrooks Dahlia's have become a favourite of mine this year. The variety of shapes and colours is amazing. The Tahoma Moonshot has got me hooked at the moment but i'm finding them tough to get hold of.

@rachelbrooks I visited Harlow Carr the other day and saw them there. Absolutely stunning. I recommend a visit if you need some inspiration. Check out the Tahoma Star as well as a Honka Red. All a similar shape just different hues.
