We visit the field where the spectacular and famous dahlias are grown. The festival was 8th to 16th September 2018 at Aylett Garden Centre, North Orbital Rd, St Albans, Herts. There was also a scarecrow competition in the Celebration Garden.
We were browsing around our local garden centre when I spotted some attractive clay pots at a bargain price. There were five left and they quickly found their way into my trolley.
I had an idea they would look good on the wall surrounding our garden pond. But the question was what to put in them? The answer came when we passed a display of summer bedding plants – geraniums. That was back in the spring. Now the geraniums are putting on a beautiful display for us.
