Dahlia Peaches n’ Cream is one of the most beautiful, the most productive and the best cut flower varieties I am growing this year. I am so in love with this pretty little dahlia. A gorgeous bloom, and this seasons favourite.
It’s spring here in Holland and that means brighter days and warmer weather. The days slowly get longer which means I can still do some gardening when I get home from work. I love it! It’s wonderful to be outdoors after a day at the office, even if it’s only for half an hour.
Hello there! Dahlia season is in full swing and despite the drought, my dahlia garden is producing lots of flowers. Flowering its heart out, dahlia Labyrinth is stealing the show. With beautiful peach-pink flowers on dark stems, this dahlia is a flower growers dream.
The best thing about having a dahlia garden is having lots and lots of flowers to play with. I like to fill jugs, bottles and vases with beautiful flowers from the garden. A flower arrangement doesn’t have to be difficult, even a few blooms in a small vase can brighten up the kitchen table. Here are more than 5 easy floral arrangement ideas with dahlias, with different flower and foliage combinations.
Last week my friend Sinie (also known as Super dahlia) and I drove to Noordwijkerhout in the Flower Bulb Region. We went to visit a family flower farm growing dahlias. The lovely ladies of FAM Flower Farm invited us and we couldn’t have been more excited.
Hello there! I hope you are enjoying the light and the longer days of May. Here in Holland, we had a cold and dry start to spring. Not ideal growing conditions. It wasn’t all bad, though, the daffodils and tulips lasted a lot longer than normal. But now that the Ice Saints have gone, it is time to start hardening off your seedlings and plant out any potted up dahlias.
Hello there! How are you? I hope you are enjoying the beautiful autumn colours, or, if you are on the other side of the globe, enjoying spring. In this blog post, I will take you to the CNB dahlia show garden. In my post about planning a dahlia garden, I suggested a visit to a show garden for inspiration. I did, and today I am sharing my photographs. I hope they will inspire you too. But first I will give you on update on my garden chores. Planting bulbs, yeah!
Hello there! I hope you enjoyed an Indian Summer wherever you live. The weather here has been amazing. This year’s summer was disappointing. According to the weather bureau, there were just seven days without rain! But, of course, when everyone went back to school and work, summer finally arrived. Two weeks ago we even had temperatures of 30ºC and over, which is a bit much for me. However, this week is chillier and I have to accept summer is truly over.
