How long do your Dahlias last?
I'm sure all of you are very busy, I can tell by the lack of posts, including myself!I hope you are all having a good summer. I am finally doing a farmers market and it's going well.
Just a quick question about dahlias. I am now growing them in my greenhouse, the karma variety, and they have produced like crazy. I've had them blooming a long time, but my customers at the market tell me it's the first flower to go in their bouquets.I was very surprised to hear this since I seem to get at least 5-7 days at home, but have noticed a few that go rather quickly. I remember someone, probably Trish, saying that they don't like bleach, so I just cut those into fresh water in a clean bucket of course, and that's it. Do they need something else to make them last, and how long is a reasonable expectation?
Thanks very much,
