dahlia advice

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

so you think the small flowers are the Suckers?

I thought a Sucker would come from below the wanted stem. this pic shows it doesnt.
