To pinch out or not pinch out?

I've not grown dahlias but I usually pitch out a lot of  things. Maybe do a few and then do the rest if it works? Don't think I've any harm with the ones that I've tried, wallflowers, sweet williams, and snap dragons. I suppose you might get more flowers on shorter stems maybe?

I get most of my pots for free at a local nursery, you can just take them away. Car boot sales are good places as well

Clematis

I've only taken clem cuttings once before. I think I dapped the end with hormone rooting powder and then planted it near the edge of the pot and forgot about it.

It did root but took a while maybe a few months? I've gradually potted it on and one of them has now been planted in the garden.

Good luck with yours, that sounds a nice one

EASTER DAY FLOWER COUNT

Beautiful pictures Gardengirl and Matty. Particularly the wall flowers.

I've got a straggly wallflower, primoses, grape hyacinths and a dodgy looking daff. It's a start. Oh and the start of a flower bud on a hardy geranium
