When to plant out dahlias

Posted: 15/05/2014 at 10:12

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!!!

Lupin border, but what else

Thanks chicly, got you now!!!

 

verdun that was my worry, they look great when in bloom but then what. Do I just sod it and cut right down and pack with the 40 dahlias I'm protecting from frost. It's not even planted yet so I bet this year will be disappointing!!! 

 

I mi have all foxgloves, delph's and dahlias but will it look showy or just newly panted! Maybe some fed ding dahlias to pack the gaps! 

 

My lupines are about three quarters of a foot talk, will they make flowering plants this year??
