Yeys! My hubbie just didn't understand.....Thanks RD!
My boyfriend is the same but I'm working on him!
Bilje, I'll sort it out soon. Been a bit mad with stuff going on, sorry.
I've "planted" a section of stem from Dahlia Imperialis which I cut down at the end of last year and chucked in the compost bin: it not only survived, but started growing both shoots and roots from the stem section. I just had to give it a chance.
So, dahlias quite popular then......
Liked them, then hated them but now getting fond of them again.
Met a guy once whose garden had nothing but dahlias .......a blaze of colour all summer. All staked and growing tall. Autumn? Nothing
I like them but not sure if they are high maintenance as last year I struggled with aphid or something black all on stems. But now having 456 bedding And my larger ones I have to do something with them.
Thanks for the reply Hostafan1, I was concerned you'd planted yourself in a border. I nearly did yesterday, over reached fell forward grabbed low fence and had to yell for help as I couldn't move for fear of standing on plants. Having a lazier day to day here in the NE the weather is glorious.
Funy you should mentioning rescues from the innards of the compost bin, I now have3 or 4 mystery dahlias I spotted them shooting away and thought it mean to re bury them. Happy days.
