Dahlia Tuber

I grew dwarf dahlia from seed and couldn't believe the size of the tubers they were massive and performed well. Gonna grow a lot more this year.

Basically I am going to start sowing a lot of plants in march. I have a lot of cuttings on the window sill and a couple of seeds.

Will the following survive in my mini greenhouse

Aquilegia

Hardy geranium

young clematis from morrisons

campanula

I have the option to keep them inside for now and all have been growing since september apart from the clematis which I just bought. Its just it would be easier as I will be tight on windowsill space.

Hollyhock queeny

Well so far so good. Just hope it doesn't start to show up. I love full size ones but my garden is too small.

yes its still there the reason im growing another is all my lupins are sprouting bar one and im planning ahead incase its not going to come back to replace the lupin. I really liked the hollyhock last year. Definitely something I would recommend growing along with a variety of magic fountain delphinium I grew. Both flowed well first year in both my garden and the many I grew for my parents garden. Both hollyhock and delphinium are sprouting new shoots aswell so look to have survived.

Does hollyhock queeny come true from seed. its one of the dwarf types that only grows 60cm. I cant find my seeds off last year and the one I grew flowered brilliantly. I have just collected loads of seeds of this plant but am not sure if its a hybrid or will come true to seed.

Wind damage, greenhouse

Posted: 18/02/2014 at 18:42

My B&q plastic one lasted all of last year with no damage but this year it broke at the base and blew away. I have repaired it but given the wind speed and the fact one of my hanging baskets pulled the bracket out of the wall the wind was that strong I don't think its too bad. I did however loose all of my sweetpeas.
