I've had some potted dahlia's on the kitchen window ( much to mrs fergy's disappoval ) for a few weeks now and am wondering when to start nipping the growing tips out, one or two are starting to get a bit straggly.



Immediately I'd say - I nipped mine out weeks ago, and again about 3 weeks ago, more to stop them flowering than anything whilst still indoors. I'm sick of them on my windowsill as well...

Cut back to about the 4th pair of leaves.
That should give you plenty of side growth. Leave them outside at all times now until planting out towards the end of this month.
