At this time of the year when everything in the garden starts to fade you can’t beat the spectacular show put on by dahlias. Theses fantastic flowers come in a variety of colours and sizes and are at their best in the autumn. The public gardens by the lake in Morges have the most fantastic display until the end of October. Entry is free and a full list of varieties is available as a pdf on the website.
At the end of the month the plants are sold off for Chf 5 per plant, with a maximum of 5 plants per variety per person – incredibly good value. An advance order (first come first served) may be made until 20 October and the plants must be collected on 29-30 October when any remaining plants are also sold off.
The dahlia collection in Morges is a great way to appreciate these beauties before adding them to your own garden.
