I grew some Bishop's Children from seed last year in pots. I have never over wintered dahlias and thought it was some kind of dark art. I left them in their pots and put them in the garage then put them in a cold frame in April . I am ridiculously chuffed that they have all sprouted and are looking strong!
Super, thank you, I'll crack on this week
I've had a Google but couldn't really find much feedback. I have a large clump I want to divide and replant around the garden. The RHS says do it in Spring but would I be OK now? I'd like to do it now to give it a bit of time to recover so it looks good next year.
I have some Everedge which I shipped to Denmark from the UK a few years ago. Still haven't got around to finishing it off as it was actually quite a faff to install. There's only so much huffing and puffing I can take from hubby....
I got over excited and ended up with bazillions of dahlias (didn't realise how easy they are from seed!). My new rule is to plant in a 12 module seed tray and aim for 7 - 10 good plants. I am busy sowing now for next year. I find it more rewarding / succesful than sowing in the spring.
I'm having a similar problem with my Bishops Children, so very interested in any feedback.
Thank you, I have now googled it and apparently it grows abundantly here in Denmark! I think it is pretty so I shall keep it until it starts to set seed then pull it out.
I thought the leaves on this looked nice when it first appeared so I spared it from being weeded and it now has a nice flower. What is it please?
I know it as belle de nuit, my French husband brought me back some seeds from his Father's garden, they were very easy to germinate. I have them in yellow and white as well as pink.
Snap to the lupins, I have attempted growing cuttings a couple of times but they failed. I really need to try again.
