Lifting Dahlias

Posted: 26/10/2014 at 12:38

I leave my dahlias till the first bit of frost kills off the foliage then I lift them dry them off in the greenhouse then put them into cardboard boxes and leave in the greenhouse and only use heater if frost is forecasted, I have left them in the ground before and only lost one or two then one year lost more than half my stock so now I just use the greenhouse.

any tips on what netting to use for growing dahlias ?

I WOULD BUY TUBERS AND THEY WILL LAST YOU FOR YEARS IF YOU STORE THEM OVER WINTER,IF YOU BUY PLUG PLANTS YOU WILL GET A VERY SMALL TUBER AT THE END OF THE SEASON,IT IS TO EARLY TO PLANT OUT YOUR TUBERS OR PLUG PLANTS GROW ON IN G/HOUSE OR WINDOW SILL.

GOOD LUCK

hi cler

i had problems with seedlings dieing off, they were in my heated greenhouse  and i found it was the compost that was the problem it was  ok on the top but when you checked below the compost it was all dried out, and the compost was from dobbies garden centre and it was 3 x 60lt for £12  dobbies mult-purpose  i now use mother earth multi-purpose compost from local nursery it is 3 x 70lt for £15

havent used wilko`s own brand i have been using dobbies multi purpose compost i bought  6 x 60lt bags they were 3 for £12 after sieving i lost about one and a half bags with all the rubbish in it and now i have found that below the surfice of the sieved compost it is all dried out this explains some of the seedlings dieing off and slow germination i have now switched to mother earth multi-purpose compost 3 x 70lt for £15 from a local nursery it is differant class the waste per bag is about one handfull.
