lateral break

pdshop(5)September 2, 2007

With the big dahlias, how do you keep the big heads from breaking at the lateral? I have them in cages.

They need to be staked. And still some of them break, but not too many. Personally, I find that the really big ones don't impress me as much as I thought that they would.
