This a beautiful Dahlia, Amy! I have a few plants of D.'Bishops Children' growing on the balcony. I got a packet of seeds from the 'Gardener's World' mag earlier this year. I sowed them but due to the weather they have been quite slow. I have had one flower but have a couple more with buds - I might see them flower before the first frosts arrive in about a month's time.

Thanks Both , I hope so David your patience should be rewarded , I have bunches of tomatoes that are still green I'm hoping we have some more sunshine to ripen them off ..

I love dahlias! I'm fighting senility it seems... I forgot all about mine until June. Stored the roots in a last minute dash last autumn (in a tea can, on a shelf in the basement) Put them in the new bed by the stream and they're up but I expect the frost will take them before they ever bloom. (like last year)... it's been a very moist but hot summer..If I hadn't been late putting them in the ground, I might have had some flowers ... mea culpa.
