I have a lot of dahlia tubers in my house at the minute the last frost date is the 2nd week of may for my area.

I am growing my own petunia, lobelia started from seed and geranium from plug and I am growing all of them on windowsills. These plants are still young and not frost hardy anyway.

The main thing I have to criticise about the show is that it didn't really show you how to grow the plants yourself. It dusted over that but and spent along time on the judging bit.
