lovely dahlias...mine are pinched by frost on one side and a single little blossom on the other.. It's been a strange season. Coldest, wettest summer I can remember. We had our first killing frost the first week of Sept. lost all my tomato vines and scarlet runner beans. The dahlias were put in at the proper time but they sulked all summer and then decided to blossom AFTER the frost! X-/

Thank-you Lorilyn. Haven't had the killing frosts here ... yet! Same here, I planted these at the usual time, they took a long time to get going, they looked healthy throughout summer but only started flowering on 4th September and the flowers don't seem to be lasting as long. This is the secord or third year where the dahlias haven't done so well here, so I may not get them next year, which is a shame as I love dahlias.

I've had mine for a number of seasons now...have overwintered the roots in bins in the basement. I refuse to give up...think I might start them early in pots and sink the pots in the garden as soon as I can..maybe that way I'll have some blooms in July and August. ;-)

I'm not too sure Lynda. I planted these ones as plug plants.

My Dahlias were a flop, so happy to see yours are flourishing. Some years better than others. I failed to give mine enough water. Did you water yours quite a lot?
