The stakes are high

Weather: Cooler but still warm. Heavy dew in the morning. Sunny.

Going into the thicket with the 'tickle stick' to aerate compacted soil in areas that we had worked on:
We did more staking today, namely Dahlias again. This time we tackled Emory Paul which as a whole plant is tall & dense. It made me realise even more just how much of a riddle it can be and how important it was to have the right sized stakes and do it as early on as possible/ necessary, and then it being a gradual & continual process of tying it in as it grows if required. It is a task that can easily take up to a couple of hours.
