Hello Ryan. Nice to hear from ??ou again
Well. You have no choice but to out them outside now.
A clean cut back is important and hopefully they will grow....there's still time for that. I think your site is fine......full sun will be too much for them right now. I would be inclined to cover those with no shoots with fleece.......helps ward off any stray slugs if nothing else.
Hi Ryan, haven't got a clue but thought I'd say hello
Hopefully the Dahlias have more 'eyes' to send up shoots from. If the main stem snapped, I would have thought this would stimulate the new ones
This Dahlia as been popping up for three years now, it survived winter too
Sorry about the sideway picture
Verd + Matt - Thankyou muchly for the help....that is my first job when I get home from college tomorrow (I may sneak out a little early ) . Can I cut them back below the soil level, or will this rot the tuber?
Also, what kind of support would you suggest for them? I'm going to Gardeners world live on Sunday and they always have a really good selection at really cheap prices!
Flumpy - That's amazing! Survived all these wet cold winters...What cultivar is it?
That doesnt look like a Dahlia flumpy
Looks like a Japanese Anemone to me.
Ryan, if there are still leaves on the stems that snapped then cut the stem back to an inch above those, you may get some side shoots coming from them
Sorry Ryan I'm not sure, I bought a variety from wilkinson, all I know is it has a perfect round pink flower (like a ball), I'm having a go at Begonia mix this year too, they are just popping there heads above the soil, I will send pictures when they flower
Matt I will send you a photo of my Dahlia when it flowers
cool The leaves just look a bit weird :P
I think Matt is correct Flumpy- it looks like a Japanese Anemone - soz
I think so too
Well I wasn't going to say anything...but
Ok i'm out voted
I'd rather have a japanese anemone than an dahlia any day
Me too - love them
I'd rather have both. Which I do already!
