How to start off correctly next year
Hey you zone 7 dahlia growers, can you help me out? I set my dalhias out the first week of June and only one plant has flowers starting to develope. What do you guys do to have your dahlias blooming already. I don't want to have to resort to starting them in the house in maybe March under lights and setting them out in the yard in June.
Instead of doing that what do you guys think about my setting out plastic on the growing area to get the soil warmed upped and then placing the dahlias in the ground when the soil is hot enough. I don't know what would be a good tempeture for this anyone have an ideal???
After I get them in the soil how do I keep them warm doing those 50 degree nights?
