Judy's flowers reach new heights
THEY say with a little love, anything can grow - so Warwick gardener Judy Hall must be putting a whole lotta love into her dahlias.
The beautiful flowers have been sprouting to new heights this season, with some shooting up to her roof.
The avid gardener said she has never seen the flowers grow so tall and was lost for an explanation.
"I have no idea why they have grown so tall but everybody keeps telling me how amazed they are," she said.
Despite their impressive size, Mrs Hall said she believed the flowers were not done growing just yet.
"I don't know how much taller they get but hopefully it's not too much because I only have 6ft stakes," she said.
About 100 of the plants are scattered throughout Mrs Hall's lovely garden and she often takes a bunch to Eden Gardens to sit on loved ones' graves.
"They're my favourite flowers because they don't take much to look after. You just put a little bit of cow manure down when you put the stakes in," she said.
Despite being in her 70s, Mrs Hall has no plans to hang up her gardening gloves and clippers.
"I spend a lot of time out here in the garden - it's good therapy," she said.
