March Week One Update

Hi Lovelies, Brace yourselves! This post has a lot of pictures. Just a quick peek at ¬†nearly everything¬†that's going on right now! Let's all just hope that this warmer weather will keep on coming our way! Not pictured is the progress on the dahlia tubers that I've started for cuttings. The reason? Well, it looks…

Growing ‘Ali Oop’ Dahlias

Hi Lovelies, It seems that I've managed to stumble upon another winner! I ordered 'Ali Oop' (like many of my other tubers) on a whim when things were on sale this year. While I'm not sure about the origin of the name on this one, I'll just assume that it has something to do with…

How to Grow Anemones in Zone 6 (and probably other places, too!)

  Hi Lovelies, Well, well. It's hard to believe this is already my fifth post of October! In many ways, October is the month that I'm doing the most things.

However, if like…

Growing ‘Cafe au Lait’ Dahlias

Hi Lovelies, Well, I think we all knew that it was only a matter of time. It was bound to happen, so I figured I would get it over with -- let's talk 'Cafe au Lait'. If you follow pretty much any flower farmer on Instagram or any other social media, for that matter, you've…

Growing ‘Precious’ Dahlias

Hi Lovelies, Well, September is finally here and that means that there's something very special happening - the dahlias are in full bloom! Even though I don't have as much space for dahlias as I would like, I'm loving what I did plant. Dahlia tubers can sometimes be on the more expensive side. Well, I…
