Munstead grows well from seed if you can wait. Sown now a viable plant by the Autumn.

Regarding Dahlia Tubers...

You could but I wouldn't. Dahlias are gross feeders they love lots of food, so a 12 inch pot can only really cope with one plant at a time. Dahlias will put on more and more tubers each year and putting both in one pot means they'll intertwine so you won't know which is which. It may make for an interesting display but I'd keep em separate.

If they're hardy fuchsia they'll take a bit of root pruning. Just cut back hard after moving feed and mulch.

Quarkrad use a sharp spade and chop down vertically to cut the lateral roots first. Then cut in at 30 degrees to get under the main stem and chop them out. Using anything else is grass suicide.

If you're raising in a propagator water from underneath, golden rule really. They should germinate quickly so one soak is all that's usually needed. Once they come up remove the lid or open the vents and pot them on once you have the first set of true leaves.

It's usually done after flowering berghill. If you do it now you'll lose the flowers. If you're not bothered then at they'll have plenty of time to settle and you may get a late show.
