dahlia cuttings

Posted: 05/04/2013 at 20:16

i may not be the best person to give advice on dahlias as its my first yr growing them also, but from the videos and infomation i have read is that when taking a cutting it needs to have an eye ( a small connection to the parent tuber)

so when taking a cutting take it as close to the tuber as you can ,also trim the excess leaves off apart from the  top leaves and keep watered , fingers crossed for you guys and myself 


Seed Sowing

currently on my window sills i have several types of dahlias all sprouting ( couldnt wait to plant them so they went by the windows ) violas ,too tiny to pot on, honesty seeds coming up, petunia seeds, zinnias ( 3rd time of trying they just kept getting weak and falling over and dying ) alyssum seeds ,brompton stock 

i have no more space so weather please warm up, im in surrey and snow is expected this weekend so i wont hope too much

Hello everybody. ill start from the top i work with disabled children and what im after is a list of plants bushes that could be eaten or just not poisenous (because it will certainly be tried) . Also if they could have great scent that would be great. Heres what ive thought so far .chives . .lavender. Rosemary.nasturtiums. something in my brain is saying violas would be ok too but i could well be making it up. ps you are really helping me as i could troll the net but whats wrong with the personal touch. thank you kerri
