Dear Garden Folk

In your experience have you had better luck/satisfaction with Dahlia from seed or Dahlia from tubers?

Thanks!

The very best came from tubers

The only seed that is commonly available (that I am aware of) is for "bedding" Dahlias. Short 18-24" bushy plants with 2-3" flowers. They grow very well from seed, and bloom much earlier. They work really well in a mixed bed, but they certainly cant compete with the big "show" dahlias.
