bedding dahlias

bedding dahlias

I planted these early May and they took a long time to get growing. They looked healthy enough, but they only started flowering on the 4th September and there are still lots of unopened buds on them. They've been disappointing for the last couple of years, so I probably won't try them again ... until I see them in the garden centre next year. lol

I love Dahlias, they flower until late in the year, and are good cut flowers :o)

I love dahlias too, they must be 1 of my favourite flowers, but the snails and slugs are winning the battle and in the last 2 or 3 years they haven't done too well for me. I think I might try a couple in pots next year.
