GOOD NEWS

Ive been scratching and scraping around the  Dahlia areas and all but 1 of the 15 plants in the ground seem to have new shoots. HUZZZZAR...

1 seems to have completely vanished. Shame as it was a lovely large red and white...oh well...

The ones in pot i got as miniature plants also seem to have gone too, but im not to bothered.

The Eraza seems to be giving me the edge on the slug vs flower 3rd world war.

Im quite happy about the situation.

The chemical warfare has already began on the front garden and is holding off the enemy.

i haven't put any pellets down in the rear garden locations, i think i will tonight.

If there's nothing by the weekend i think ill have a gentle dig about to see.....Am i to late to plant new tubers if there's nothing under the surface??

Hi. My dahlias in my front north facing garden are starting to pop their heads up so I'm very happy about that however the many that grew in the south facing rear garden don't seem to be. I have a few other miniature s in pots and some around my pond. Nothing there either. I know I'm lucky as they usually will not survive but last winter was very mild where I live in SE kent. I had no frost... I need to know whether they Will grow or if I need to get more tubers in asap. Also Will the ones in the front be more prolific on their second year? Any advice is Good advice R

Im no expert and it could be a Standard Tea.

I know the chap i got it from but he's a busy man and as i got it from a year ago he wont remember it. I did get it for about £10 as nobody else wanted it but as a novice it seemed a good price for the size and i have 2 more the same that are excellent.

The lower richt hand stem leads to a few large flowers.

The left hand stem leads to many small buds and flowers
