This morning my husband needed some wood for a project we’re working on; so a trip to the local DIY store was necessary.
and just guess what had arrived.
There’s also a couple of packs of Cannas, just to try!
Last year I bought my Dahlias quite early (but not as early as this, I’m sure) with the intention of planting them directly into the ground as soon as the weather warmed up; but last year we had a cold spring and I have to admit that some of the tubers were rather dried out by the time I planted them. They did all grow but not as well as they should. It is my intention this year to plant them into pots (next week) and put them on the lower shelves in the greenhouse to grow on and hopefully make some strong growth before they are planted out.
