I guess your dahlias might have been rained on while you were at work... What colours ?

My dahlias are up, this rain will bring them on too i should think, they are in pots though so i can dot them through the border.

No TT we didnt have any rain here this evening...I planted a batch of collerettes...a mixture of red, wine and dark pinks with white through the double row of petals....i hope they are as beautiful as i imagine......

Hi sewingkilla, my dahlias in pots are up too, i started them off indoors because i wanted to take cuttings, i have been hardening them off but im afraid to leave them out all night in case we have a touch of night frost, which can happen here in northern ireland.....

Sounds like you are all having fun taking cuttings and growing them on and I bet you will have some wonderful displays.We used to grow them years ago but never had sucess with overwintering them so in the end stopped growing the ones from tubers and just grew some from seed and used them as annual ones in the borders.....
