Went a little order happy...
I really have so many dahlia this year I don't know what to do with them. I have beds in the rear upper corner of my property but no practical water source and the deer and critter are an issue there.
On top of that I ordered 16 canna this year in addition to the three I already had. Same issue. No bed space by the house and my husband will go a little nutzoid if I cut into "his" grass for a new bed.
I planted everything up in those black and green nursery pots which range from 9"-12" in diameter (now sitting in my basement and laundry rooms) but certainly I can't keep them in those after they go outside in mid May. Nor do I have or want to purchase 15 huge clay pots (too heavy) or huge plastic ones (also heavy and just not attractive).
At some point could I possibly just dig individual holes in the grass for the plants (keeping them in groups of 5). I hate the idea of giving my children up for adoption.
I would appreciate any and all ideas.
