Im a new gardener and last year my dad grew masses of really beautiful Dahlias which i want to do this year but i have a few questions for the pro's......
First I want to grow Black and White ones in my front north facing garden which gets sun early untill mid morning if lucky. Can anyone recomend the Blackest type, i know there actually very dark red but i know there what i want.
Is there a type that has black and white on the same flower, iv seen red and white.
They will be grown against a 90cm wall so i want them around 1m tall. Im not worried about weather there Ball, PomPom or the Cactus types or really the size of the flowers, as long as theres lots of Black n White colours to match the front of house.
Whats a good price for these and where can i get them.....If i can grow them in the front.....
I keep seeing the Tubers in shops now, should i get them now and get them in the soil?
Im going to get Mixed types for the Back Garden, all colours and sizes. Theres plenty of sun there...
Im a fan of roses so if i cant use dahlias is there a Black climbing Rose i could use.
Any advise is very welcome, im sure ill ask more now im on this site.
