Plant of the Week: Dahlia
After a spell in the fashion wilderness, we've rediscovered the delights of exotic-looking Mexican dahlias – and now we can't get enough of them. The sheer variety is mind-boggling, from the charm and simplicity of single-flowered 'Bishop of Llandaff' to spiky cactus flowers, tight pompoms or romantic waterlily types, in every shade from palest cream to sultry deep purples.
Now is the time to drop established plants into your borders, filling gaps and adding a look-at-me splash of colour. Discover a few new varieties each year and you'll soon build up a collection of spectacular colour to jazz up your borders from midsummer till the first frosts.
