RESCUING DAHLIAS

THE NATIONAL DAHLIA COLLECTION

The National Dahlia collection is near Penzance in Cornwall, UK. There are rows and rows of incredible dahlias; Pom poms, cactus, giants as big as your head and dainty singles... We went late in the afternoon, ( without the teenagers! ) on our last day in Cornwall... #stelleruk

Emma spotted the compost heap...so I decided to rescue a big bunch of fading, short stemmed cast offs...

Emma bought a couple of plants...

paid the cashier ...

...and after travelling for 9 hours in the car the next day, these dead heads perked up amazingly when I got home...

A lot of beauty can be rescued from a heap!
