Daliah in pots?

Posted: 14/03/2013 at 21:06

Would I be able to plant the tubers in May or would that be too late as I dont have room to start them off to be honest. I was thinking that regarding the wind however I was going to grow it against my house wall so perhaps i could secure the pot somehow.

Thanks for the replys

Daliah in pots?

Posted: 14/03/2013 at 20:23

I really want a Daliah, the dinner plate size flower ones. I however will have limited space in my garden when I plant it all up with the plants I am growing. Will one do well in a reasonably large pot. Also are these plants any good and do you recommend a variety. Also when would I plant the tuber? I live in North east England.

If a pot is not suitable would you be able to recommend a particularly slender one.

Thanks for any replys
