Late October Dahlias

With such mild fall temperatures here in Bedford, New York, my dahlias continue to bloom so beautifully.

I designated a large space for growing dahlias right behind my vegetable greenhouse, in an area that gets great sun and protection from strong winds. The colorful flowers begin to bloom with great profusion just as other plants pass their prime, and they last right up until the first frost. Not long ago, my head gardener, Ryan McCallister, cut a lovely selection to decorate my home.
