When to plant out dahlias

Posted: 15/05/2014 at 17:13

My other half bought me a tray of plugs for £10 I potted up each one and then counted, 456 no idea where to set them as I'm full and no room for the larger dahlia! Wondering about poppin at my gate for sale, but how much for a tray of 6!!! Or a large dahlia in a big pot!

I have bedding dahlias and then a mixed variety that stands at 3 ft. I'm wondering about taking them out my plastic greenhouse and planting them out now it's warm. But will I regret it?

I was warned off the yellow one by my farther he said that yellow roses show wear and damage badly. so I tried to look up the pink variety and I can't find it anywhere it's called perfectly pink, anyone got a clue, or heard of this??

Does it matter the type of rose, are they hard to care for?

Today I have seen standard roses at homebase standing over a mitre and they are £15 down from £20/30. Anyone bought standard roses from homebase before, is it a good price. Are there varieties not to touch or should a rose be a rose be a rose!!! Thanks

Thanks nut! He said they were like cream peas!!! Thanks for hints bukertoo. Just sad there were 3 different couloured plants there too. He didn't take the pods off my variagated one as said pods felt empty, so one hope left. But was desperate for more of my deep pink!!!
