Red dahlia turned yellow

Posted: 10/06/2014 at 21:09

Firstly I bow my head and apologise for this thread! It would seem that some tomfoolery has been afoot and the joke is on me! My sister thought it would be hilarious to swap my yellow tags for my red as I had 6 of each. My reds are yellow and my yellows are red!!! Unfortunately my red tubs are now yellow and 3 of my red dahlias have been sold thinking they were yellows!! (Sad)


Apparently she was waging war against my neatness and my neatly labelled pots and thought I would find it funny. Instead due to the volume of dahlias this year I out some out to sell to make compost money

moral of the story, no one is allowed in my garden unsupervised!!!

Marked my tubers last year and potted and labelled. They have grown back but now are starting to bud and the flowers appear like they are going to be yellow not red. How can this happen. Def not a labelling error as the foliage is diff to my others. i have 6, some seem to be red but at least 3 are yellow!!!!

Hi, I applied at 1/4 the dose it asked for. It was on poor soil and people kept telling me that it needs a feed! Will it be best to leave alone for a couple of days then assess the damage then remove poorly leaves. We have had so much rain here I bet the splashing up has been my enemy. I usually use blood and bone or chicken. I ran out using this on my back so the other half said use the grow more. I did at weak strength but..... One Step forward , 2 back. Oh well lesson learnt!

We put some asda grow more granules on the dalia bed and it has rained. Today the leaves as partly floppy and some brown, also they look like they have been touched by frost, it's clearly the fertiliser. Will they recover, shall I water them more or????
