I went to pick up mulch yesterday but the garden center was completely out until later in the day. Vendors were delivering plants right and left and staff were scurrying to find room to place them all.
More than once I passed by an amazing grouping of several dozen large pots of Dahlia ‘Firepot’ and each time I told myself, “No, too expensive. You already planted some dahlias and besides, the color is too tropical for your garden.” But who listens to me?
For now I put it in a ceramic pot to brighten up one corner of the garden.
