dwarf-red-dahlia---keeping-it-advice

Posted: 11/08/2013 at 16:58

The thing is they don't seem to have tubers! It's weird! They are still putting up new shoots so wondered about taking cuttings from this? If not I will save root ball and try to bring through winter as u say. I packed mine in shredded paper last year and put in an unheated conservatory .

Hi all. I had 10 red dwarf dahlia last year. I managed to overwinter 1, from this I took cuttings and now have 4. I have tried to propagate the seed but after 3 attempts no germination at all. So I'm thinking its not fertile from seed. 

 

Im wondering if I can take a cutting or two and overwinter, anyone tried this or got any advice?? Thankyiu

I have been collecting the pansy seed pods as they ripen but now unsure when to sow. These purple pansies were planted in winter and have flowered right through until now. So when do I sow ready for this winter??
