Tree Dahlia update!
This amazing plant has flowered and had about 18 pink flowers. Sadly a frost yesterday so now looking very sad. Challenge now to save it for next year. I did take some photos but they are on my phone.
I garden in South Notts on an improved clay soil
I think you should be proud of the fact that you got it to flower at all.
As mentioned before often the season isn't long enough for them to flower.
The most serious gardening I do would seem very strange to an onlooker,for it involves hours of walking round in circles,apparently doing nothing. Helen Dillon.

This year has been good for them, I know Alan Gray at East Ruston in Norfolk has had flowers on his.
There are ashtrays of emulsion,
for the fag ends of the aristocracy.
