Gardening is different things to different people. I get much more pleasure from a plant I have raised from seed, or cutting. By raising lots of plants, I am happy to try them in situations which may not be ideal, and am often pleasantly surprised by the outcome. I would not be so happy to do this if I had paid a lot of money for a plant.

I do enjoy an online shop though, to buy something unusual. In winter I seem to spend a lot of time looking at plants online. It is a lovely way to spend some time, particularly with a glass of something for company.

At the moment am waiting for a consignment of bulbs to arrive, always good when they arrive.

Interesting Fidget, I have no terracotta Bishops children, but lots of luminous pink, and a fair few reds.

Sorry to hear about your fall Dove. I have just been trying to keep busy, until Mum phones me, to give me the news. Not really been able to settle to do anything.

I will have some of that cake for later, if I may SGL.

Better go and cook tea for the worker, home made burgers, with a tomato and red pepper relish.

Dahlia Seeds

Yes, they should develop tubers, which should be dug up after the first frosts, dried off and kept in a frost free location till next Spring, when you can start again.

Yes, you can grow them, although they will not come true from seed, ie the offspring are unlikely to look like the parents.

I would sow in early Spring, in a heated propagator, although a warm window sill may be ok. Pot the seedlings on as they get bigger, I do this 2 or 3 times, they can then be planted out when all the frosts have finished
