    I bought some new varieties of Dahlia this year  and can highly recommend three in particular.  Dahlia Bangkok has huge shaggy flowers in red and copper tones – this is the first time I’ve succumbed to a ‘Giant Decorative’ and I suspect it won’t be the last. I bought it from www.mr-fothergills.co.uk.

    The other two are Sarah Raven dahlias ( www.sarahraven.com )  and although they have struggled a bit against slug damage, I really like the flowers and I am confident they will really perform next year.  ‘Purple Haze’ is a rich violety-purple with an almost iridescent sheen and ‘Happy Halloween’ is a pure clear orange which will look even better when I plant it amongst reds and oranges, rather than the pastel pinks and purples where I accidentally planted it this year!
