Chinese Asters & dahlias from seed question
I don't grow on a large scale, as you do. However, I successfully winter-sowed several annuals for our home gardens and for bouquets I sell locally. They did pretty well.
I just wonder if it is normal for the few chinese asters and dahlias that I grew from seed to not have even started blooming til about ten days ago? In fact, I have 2 plants in pots that are just about to bloom for the first time! Seems like it'll be winter soon! LOL We've had weird summer weather, hot for a few days, then cool, then warm again. I have made sure the plants were watered well and in sun. They are looking great, but it's almost fall! Not sure it's worth bothering with, if they take THIS long to bloom! Advice? Thanks!
(BTW, I DO know about the disease they can get, and to plant in different places next year, etc.) :0) Phyl
