ART DECO


ART DECO



Comments on this photo

 

My local greengrocer has diversified and for the last few years has been selling plants. For weeks I walked past his trestle outside his shop in the Square ogling these dahlias, but somewhat laden with bags. In the end I couldn't resist and bought two. Wouldn't mind more they were £3.99 for a big plant. They're still in the pots and moved to gaps:-))

I like the color on this one BA. I like to grow dahlias in general and will see if I can find a tuber of "art deco".

Hi Klahanie, I think there is an 'Art' series, all lovely, but this is outstanding I think:-)

Eeek!! To think you might have lost these by waiting so long BA, you coulda carried them on your head!! Next time take one of those carriers that have a band for your head..and the bag goes on your back, you know, like the african women do..great idea that!

Erm...I'll give that one a miss thanks Tet, have thought about taking the folding plastic carty things you buy from shows though. Just need a little courage:-))

They sound a good idea BA..just one teensy drawback...you made them sound sort of..small..but I've never been to posh shows so never seen them. Will they go on a bus or do I need to hire Eddie Stobbart?

They'll go on a bus, but shop in walking distance:-)

I do love them Summer, but don't have a greenhouse. If I leave them in their pots and just bring them into the garage and don't water them, will they survive? :-)
