Dahlias 2013 photo competition winners

Postby ian » Fri Mar 29, 2013 6:02 pm

It was hard to know what might appear in the Dahlia Photo Competition as they come is such a range of colour, sizes and shapes but we think the results speak for themselves. Dahlias are probably not appreciated as much as they should be as with a little bit of maintenance removing old blooms, they flower for a longer period than most other comparable plants - great value for summer colour and beyond! The winning photos are good examples of the colour and variety that are available with these easy care plants.

The winners of the Dahlias 2013 Photo Competition are:

1st prize - $200 Garden Express eGift certificate - joybel for the photo 'Dream Maker dahlia - Future Watch':


2nd prize - $60 Garden Express eGift certificate - Annaskli for the photo 'Dahlia Rusty Red':


Congratulations to all those who entered and particularly to the winners.

Now for something different, the latest photo competition gives you all plenty of scope to find a suitable photo to enter. Autumn colour can come in all sorts of forms so get out in the garden in the coming weeks, look at all the colour and get snapping!!
