I love your gardens! Last time I was in Juneau I had no wrinkles and ate Mangy Moose Pizza. What a fantastic setting and lovely plants you have! Enjoy them all.

Oh yes, Bullwinkle's! That sounds familiar too. I'm almost afraid to do a search for Mangy Moose anything ;) But I know I was there or familiar with a place of that name. Maybe it was in Yukon Territory?

How is it that you can get hydrangea- a shade lover, and dahlias, sun lovers blooming in the same bed? Is it the extended daylight that makes it possible?

RE: more dahlias from Juneau, Alaska

good question poochella! shade lovers seem to do ok fully exposed...i think this is because we get so much rain and cloud cover, they're not really exposed to extreme heat.

as for the dahlias, they'll bloom but they are not as vigorous as in other places, such as washington. the dahlia gardens there blow me away, and there is just no way i'd get the dinner plate forms to bloom here (even though i start them early in my greenhouse). rip city was a case in point -- planted it in mid march and got only one-and-a-half flowers before it was time to dig them up. i can't help but think rip city resents me a little for expecting it to grow here.

Oh, I love those tall ones! Just getting into dahlias-I always thought they would be fussy divas, being so big and fluffy! My favs are the single ones with lots of pollen for the bees.

brandymulvaine -- i agree...the singles are big bee attractions....that's one of the reasons i like them too. i'm getting smitten with the more fancy ones though (in large part because of some of the photos on this site).
