Wilting dahlia

I would agree with Verdun, I dont agree with keep feeding plants, my dahlias are started of in any old rubbish compost, from last year tubs or anything that falls off when I repot. When they get planted out they will get some home made compost put round them. 

If you feel you want to feed it, wait until it gets flower buds, if you feed if first you will just get lots of green, try putting it in a bigger pot, depending On how tight the roots are.

Hard gardener me! I like to make my plants work.

It's my birthday

I agree with Pansy, I sowed my seeds yesterday. They will be planted out Mid to end of May.

 I would grow some more if it were me, but then, had it been me I wouldnt have planted so early.  Another month and yours will be pretty tall!

I dont dig but OH had a go at the bean trench.

I dont wash pots either and only wash the greenhouse when the green stops the light getting in, I am always much to busy to get round to those jobs,

I grow lupins in the Spring, over winter in cold greenhouse and plant out next Spring.

Always the same here, nasty frosts last night,  that is why I dont plant anything out until end of May, at least.
