Gaillardia 'Arizona Sun'
Has not stopped flowering since I planted it in July. One of the best plants I have purchased this year
yea thats what I was told too Dove. They arent vertical but the stems are pointing down enough so anything will drain out of it
and they wont freeze in the toilet but my behind will when I sit on it on a cold morning before work!
Im letting them dry first then gonna wrap them up in newspaper. I'll then stick them in the cupboard under the sink in the unheated downstairs loo which can get very chilly in Winter :P
A lovely hot and spicy curry that gets the sinuses going!
If any of the leaves have gone mushy they are not producing food for the plant so I would cut them off.
They should produce new leaves
and they all have a piece of stem each
I was wondering more than anything if they will keep over the Winter being so small.
Glad to hear that they will produce lovely plants even being that small
Hi all I dug up some Dahlia Tubers today to clear my beds. The ones I grew from seed are lovely and fat but the ones I bought as cheap bedding plants are very small.
Is it worth trying to keep any of these?
You can do it now or wait until the frosts. Its completely up to you
The longer they are left in the ground, the better the tubers will develop
and if they are still flowering I see no reason to dig them up yet
The roots are spreading nicely through the soil which is a good sign, I cut down all the foliage and removed any bits from the soil then gave it a good mulch.
Lets hope it puts on a good show next year
