|Dahlias and cake - the perfect recipe in the kitchen|
I've always grown Dahlias from tubers as this was a straightforward and affordable option given that I've not had the space needed to grow things from seed, aside from the odd vegetable crop and even these struggled on windowsills. With the beginnings of the new garden and with the addition of a greenhouse it seemed as though the time was right to try and grow them from seed at least.

I hope to lift the tubers of these plants in the Autumn and then further extend the range of plants on offer by sowing more seed next year to add more variation and fill in the colour gaps as I seem to have largely an orange and red palette with the odd bit of pink thrown in.
Here's to the Dahlia!
