Garlic & Chrysanthemum Rust

Posted: 09/10/2014 at 11:00

Chrysanthemum rust is caused by Puccinia horiana while garlic rust is caused by Puccinia allii (syn. Puccinia porri). Therefore they will not attack other plants outside their preferred species

It's a dahlia, they originate from Mexico and aren't hardy in the UK. They are usually dug up after the first frost has blackened the stems, you can store the tubers somewhere frost free over winter. They won't need light.

Remember that alliums have a lot of foliage which looks untidy after flowering, some people try to hide them behind other plants to hide this

Does anybody know what this is, please?

It could be that they have been stored somewhere cool prior to shipping to force dormancy on it.
