How much can a dahlia take?

Posted: 12/10/2012 at 16:44

Last winter was so awful, I didn't get the chance to lift mine and to my surprise, they grew this year fine - a bit slow to get started, but OK.   I had to cut one down because it was completely ravaged by tiny snails.   I hope it survives.   The other one is flowering now.   It has missed the earwigs that plagued me last year, and is a bit scruffy because of the snails, but otherwise OK.   I intend to mulch deeply with something sharp and to leave them in the ground again.(Twinings after eight)  The ones in pots came through the winter as well, but have not frown as strongly as the ones in the ground.
