Lovely pictures Allan! They look so good to us who are looking out the window at a bit of leftover snow and ice that is trying to melt in the partly cloudy day.

I really like the picture of your dahlia bed. What do you use to attach the dahlia plants to the wooden stakes? I'm making a promise to my plants that I will stake them this year so they don't sprawl. I used a light weight plastic covered wire holder that wasn't heavy enough to keep the plant off the ground last summer. I need suggestions on staking this year, so I appreciate your info.

Linda

Thank you Steve & Linda for your comments. Am having problems with my browser at present, ie unable to log in using stored data????
Linda, I use what ever is available for tying plants to stakes, though flexible fibrous string is preferred.

This year am dis-budding flower stems, meaning severe cutting back once flowers are removed is necessary, hence tying the new growth using more twine is necessary on a regular basis.
