It was a glorious day here today.

Spent most of the day putting dahlias into pots. I can see light at the end of the tunnel now but there are still plants waiting to be planted out or potted on!!! Maybe I will get it finished this week.

That area looks lovely. Are they Agapanthus on the left?

Moya do you keep your dahlias in pots all the time or will you plant them into your beds - I dug up all mine last year and now have them all in pots but it seems like a very big job to go planting them all in the beds again - maybe I will just drop the pots into the beds and disguise them

my dahlia was getting so much hardship from the slugs that i had to take it up put it in a pot and pamper it in the tunnel, hope it comes on ok. i think i'll lift any i have in the autunm this year i know it's more work but i nearly lost my favourite one this time

Jacinta, they are indeed Aganpanthus Blue Storm. I look a lot of agapanthus in the bad winters and am just building them up again.

Mary, I've ended up with them all in pots as I can't fit them into the perennial beds. They would get swamped in there. I lifted and kept quite a few tubers in the house this year and they were the first to sprout in the spring. I plan to repeat that. It worked well Ann.

Thanks Andy.
