Much as I would like to grow more dahlias I am constrained by a lack of space so generally I only grow one or two. In the past I’ve grown colourful decorative types which have fairly large blooms but this year I’ve bought a couple of white Snowflake pompon tubers which have smaller globe-shaped flowers.
I also always grow some gladioli and usually buy new corms year to year. This year I’ve chosen the variety White Goddess.
It’s been an unsettled week with plenty of rain at times so the only day that I’ve been to to the plot was Tuesday to have a look round to see if I could decide where to grow these. I think that they’ll all go together on the flower patch alongside the grass path just beyond the hawthorn.
The weather looks like remaining changeable through to at least early next week with more rain and very windy at times.
Have a good weekend!
