Nice to see your dahlias and am glad you are keeping up with the family tradition.

oscarthecat, my grandmother was a good woman and they just don't make grandmas like her anymore. That pic was taken around 1960 or so. I miss her.

I wish you knew the name of that first one (Pale yellow)! I would love to grow one just like it! My favorite pale shade of yellow and can't get enough of the fringes and ruffles!

Thank You

Cherylgardenalways,

Since this is the 1st time for me growing dahlias, how and when do I harvest the seeds, and when should I plant them? Of course, I'll send you some seeds.

Dahlias are very prone to mutation so generally the seeds are not saved, rather the underground tubers are saved and traded. The tubers can be divided to produce more clones of the same variety of dahlia. The seeds will very likely not have the same characteristics as the parent plant.
