I wanted to share my experiences of this year’s cutting garden and to sing the praises of one particular flower that we grew, the beautiful Dahlia ‘Cafe au Lait’. We planted a large batch of bulbs in late May, the first flowers bloomed in July and they are still coming in late October, it has been a joy to grow this majestic flower and so rewarding to start growing our own.

In early spring there are some special flowers that are worth celebrating and one of my favourite of all is the divine Hellebore. I’m not sure why I love Hellebore so much, perhaps it’s because they come so early bringing much needed colour and beauty to the garden, but undoubtedly I love them for their delicate form.
