i decided that they'd be easier to keep track of in rows, so i lined them out in my seedling bed. i thought that i had a lot more than i did, sure seemed like it when i was potting them and watering them in the greenhouse! stakes and twine are up, plants are pinched back and mulched with straw. now on to other summer chores

RE: dahlias are officially planted

i've only had them in my possession for a couple of weeks and one pot is already missing a tag and after accidently breaking off the two eyes on my wyns king salmon i found out the tuber was rotten...

Gardening can be frustrating at times. Steve S.

RE: dahlias are officially planted

I got my 130 into the ground last week too. I pre-start them in gallon pots so most were a good foot or more tall, except some I got later in the springtime. I even ended up with enough space to pop in the ones that I rescued from the big winter freeze but lost the names to, so I hope I hsve some nice surprise visits from "old friends". Already have blooms on Ebony Witch and Star Child. They go into my personal garden where I grow the ones that I do not cut.
