I’ve had great fun growing dahlias for the first time, and I can’t get over just how much they flower. We planted over 30 different varieties which were nurtured from tubers and now that I’ve had a chance to experience them all, I’ve decided to name my 10 favourites.
Spoiler alert, my 10 favourites are Mister Frans (Mr Frans), Sylvia, Babylon Bronze, Waltzing Mathilda, Engelhardt’s Matador, Berner Oberland, Orange Pekoe, Labyrinth, Islander and Penhill Dark Monarch. if you’d like to see any of them, please watch my short Instagram video where you can see them in all their splendour.
