Congratulations to June at The Cynical Gardener who has won my prize draw for a copy of Naomi Slade’s new book, Dahlias.
I wrote a review of the book Here.
I absolutely love the book, and find I’m dipping into it whenever I sit down and rest a moment in my potting shed armchair.
The book features mouth-watering photographs by Georgianna Lane. It’s easy to read and there are lots of hints and tips on getting the best out of your dahlias.
Who could resist these lovely, brightly-coloured single varieties.
Here’s some photos of my own dahlias in my cut flower patch. I’m looking forward to trying out some of the newer varieties highlighted in the book. I’m particularly keen to try the dark red and chocolate types, as well as the cheerful sounding “happy” series.
Some of mine have been grown from seed. They produce good size plants in one year.
Dahlias will be published by Pavilion Books on 2nd August, RRP price £25. Here’s the Amazon link for more information.
