got some dahlias in containers in compost,what feed do
you suggest and how often?

Phostrogen, or miracle gro or tomorite, or comfrey feed.
Not nettle feed or anthing high nitrogen which encourages leaves and not flowers.

Mine are flowering in the ground. I added blood fish and bone to the soil before I planted. They were in pots of compost, with added fertiliser.
