I grew Bishops children from seed this year. I put one to a 7cm square pot. Some are now sending up flowers, but mostly I have pinched them to make them branch. Some got attacked by slugs and that made pinching unnecessary. I have lined them out in the veg patch this last week, most of them are forming tubers now in the pots. I expect them to flower from August through to the frosts . Seed grown dahlias usually flower later in the season than tuber grown dahlias.
I will pick the best to save overwinter, for an earlier display next year.
