Dahlias from the seed
Dahlias has been flowering since late June. To make the flowers come, they remove the used flowers.
But if you want to raise Dahlias from the seed in the house, you can. The seeds germinate easily and can give a wonderful and beautiful seed for next summer.
Leave only two or three used flowers on each plant to collect your own seeds. By allowing only a few seeds to ripen, they can continue to bloom and still have flowers.
When ripe, the flower petals shed all the petals and begin to turn green. The seeds of darkness are seen, washed into dry heads. Wrap those heads in an old paper envelope and place them in a warm place to dry.

Later, when the seed heads are dry, break them gently and collect the dark, long seeds. You can sow in the seed tray or in small pots next spring. To germinate, they need at least 16c overnight temperature.
If sown early and planted in late June, the seedlings will bloom in late summer. They are not exactly the same as their parents, and they may be more beautiful.
For now, you can treat your flower buds in late summer. They may simply need to spray their leaves with a mixture of seaweed. Seaweed tonic works just as well as frozen foliar food. Follow the instructions on the bottle.
Look at the tomatoes
Greenhouse Tomatoes If you have been bearing fruit since July, you may be tired. Make sure they are high in potassium fertilizer regularly and continue to harvest the fruits.
Tomatoes are vulnerable to white house flies.
Of my tomato plants, I control the tallest French or African marigolds.
Large lavender varieties bloom. To make your shrubs or lavender shrubs compact and sturdy, cut out all the flower heads used, and cut the fresh leaf under the stem.
If you do that now, your caregivers may produce a little late flowering fluid. They look beautiful and provide much-needed nutrients for insects.
Ripe lava flowers, if left on plants, produce fertile seeds. You can grow them or transfer them to a crib.

My black-leafed smoky forest Cotinas Coggyria Royal Purple is sick. Whole branches are dying. how?
Mr. J. Foster.
Shrubs are highly susceptible to verticillium wilt. Soil-borne fungal infections affect the circulatory system, preventing water and nutrients from reaching certain branches.
Unfortunately, verticillium wilt is incurable. The fungus stays in the soil near your forest. Your plant may last a little longer, but it loses its strength as the backbone spreads. Perhaps it would be better to get rid of the poor now.
If you have replaced Cotinus, you have chosen a verticillium-resistant shrub. Holly comes in a wide range of immune systems. Female species, such as the Golden-Born Lady Bryot, produce berries. You can keep the holly in any size or shape. Visit rhs.org.uk for information on other herbicides.
Plant of the Week
If you have lilac-pink or mauve colchicums in your garden, here’s the difference. C byzantinum is a hardy variety that, when ripe, produces large curved flowers. Those are also pale lilacs.
The difference, however, is that the tapes have pure white flowers with purple stripes on the outer edges.
The tips stand out in the boring weather or when the flowers close in the morning.
Like many columns, these are deep, fertile soils that flow freely, but do not dry out quickly. Sunny places are great, but partial shade is also acceptable. Try Avonbulbs.co.uk.
