It’s been a busy autumn, because most of our plants across our 5 acres of gardens need to be pruned at this time of year, and the mulching continues around the property.
I have an exciting new project happening between the main hedges out in the front garden. The soil is being prepared for a dahlia bed. Dahlias are wonderful flowering plants, with jewel-coloured flower heads towering above the beds.
The beds will be planted with a selection of the taller species, and in the nursery, I'm raising the shorter species. The Adelaide Botanic Garden has a wonderful dahlia garden which is worth visiting to see them in full bloom. And just imagine what our garden will look like in autumn next year.
