Dahlia and Echinacea

Just look at those fabulous flashes of red / orangefrom the ‘Bishop of Oxford’ dahlia that I bought at Wisley. I’ve never had much luck with dahlias as the slugs love them to bits, so I’ve decided to keep these in pots rather than planting them out. The white flowers are Echinacea – another favourite with the bees.
