New to Oregon and Dahlias
Hello All, I moved to Vernonia, OR a year ago so I am new to gardening in this climate. I had a disasterous winter as I underestimated the cold and lost a lot of container plants. I was used to climates where putting plants in the garage was enough to keep them safe. Not so here. Live and learn, that's what it's all about.
I'm also new to Dahlias (and just about every other plant I couldn't grow in Arizona :o) and I'm worried about how small the plants are. I probably planted them late but I guess I thought they would grow faster. If there is anyone from the Vernonia area who could give me a timetable, it would be greatly appreciated.
