In my years of arranging flowers, I have become partial to dahlias. The fact that I can actually grow them doesn’t hurt either…The Café au Lait variety is among my favorites and was the first I planted at the ranch, what, five years ago now? They are perennial in the Santa Ynez Valley where we live, meaning we do not have to dig them up and store them each year, which endears them to me even more. But fair warning, unless you live somewhere very warm, you’re gonna have to dig’em up. That, or start all over with new plants each season. But hey that isn’t so bad seeing as how they bloom their hearts all summer long. Today in my stories are some tips you need to plant and grow your own. ⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ Photography by @floretflower⁠⁠
