Looking really good Baz, loads of plants! What's the plant in the middle of the first pic, it's got very strange looking leaves?

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

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
