What to do with my Dahlia tubers now please?

Posted: 12/02/2016 at 01:12

You can put dahlia tubers in a pot of multipurpose compost, but keep it on tge dry side until you see shoots , then water and feed. Mine are kept over winter this way, potted in old compost I used last year for the tomatoes. I dont water at all over winter. When they start shooting, I start watering and feeding, potting on into larger pots when necessary. They cant go into the garden until June in my area(east midlands)

Hello fellow gardeners :)

That depends on how high the heap is, Steve.

A Valentine meal with who ?

We can have a special valentine night here. The bedroom four poster will get red drapes. We get a bottle of baileys and some chocolate covered strawberries.

I'm going diving instead. 

There is a bottle of fizz in the fridge, and I bought a card from home, and some hotel chocolat caramel chocolate hearts. That will do. Sometimes my head rules the wallet.

Good night everyone, it looks like you're all in bed.

I just want to be David Attenboroughs bag carrier. I'd even work for nothing but food.

I think the worse thing about module trays is they provide board and lodging for slugs.

Where is my grass?

Calm down, Edd.

Its to do with copyright issues and plagiarism.

All you have to do is put a link in to something else on the web, instead of cut and paste.
