Dahlias - do they all have tubers?

Posted: 27/09/2013 at 19:05

I have been told by a supplier some done by cuttings in the spring may not develop tubers and have been bred to concentrate growth more into flowering. Not sure if this is correct though? I wonder whether the use of growth retardant could affect tubeer production? The ones we had to try have produced tubers though

Evergreen Shrubs?

Anyone can identify this?

Up in County Durham it doesn't seem to do well in pots, last winter died right right back but did sprought a bit at btottom and broke eventually. There is one doing alright in a gravel herb bed in a sheltered walled south/east spot. This is at 800ft.

I did this last year, worked brilliantly.

I did Chinodoxia, crocus, tulips (two varieties) daffodil and narcissi.

Assume you could also add Iris reticulata for early colour. Layered on bulb size I think
