DAHLIA : AN EFFORT FOR THE RUINS

Recovering our plant collection is a hard thing for me.
Especially the beautiful one...
When I went home and dahlia found my lovely dahlia was drought and withered, really made me so sad.
the one and only mini  that I have.

 

Such a shame... I haven't taken a picture of the bloom yet.

 

Now... the plant is so poor. 
So I have to do something to recovery the plant soon.


Watering the media soon, and I can find a new hope... a little shoot bud... 

 

Then... I did pruning to the plant and hoping it will grow better.
I hope it wasn't too late ...
