Dahlias for Floral Design Practice
I live in Illinois, and I am wanting to start Dahlias in my yard so that I can practice floral design with them. I just finished my first class.
So my first question: If I plant tubers now, will I get flowers this year, and when?
Second, does anyone know anyone in the Joliet area who would be willing to sell lots of them to me for a small fee?
