hello!

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns’.

Clean up the plants by reducing them by a third, removing weak stems. Wipe the blades of pruning tools with methylated spirits after every cut, to reduce the spread of infection. ✿ WHEN FROST blackens dahlias, cut back to about 15cm, then dig up and store in a cool, frost-free place over winter.
