dahlia planting

Posted: Today at 22:37

I live in South Lincolnshire and would like to plant out dahlia tubers and leave them in the ground as I don't have any luck in keeping them over winter in the greenhouse. This last winter I'd covered them in newspaper and put them in dry planters but to no avail all rotten.

Any advise would be very welcome

Yellowing leaves on my Stephanotis

Thank you very much for all your replies I really appreciated them. She was repotted a few weeks ago and she's looking better so fingers crossed I'll be getting some flowers some time in the spring.!!

Hi, I have a very rampant climbing rose which hasn't flowered very well this year. Am I right in thinking that in the spring I can cut it down to almost ground level and let it start again or is that totally wrong!?!?!?

Help, my lovely Stephanotis leaves are going yellow and dropping off and I've no idea why.

It is a bright position and is kept moist and I feed it a weak tomato fertiliser monthly so can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong??

Good morning James, I have only just started reading your blogs and have thoughly enjoyed it.

We also have a dog who thinks anything green is just for him to use as a toilet!! They are delightful but as you we wouldn't be without him.

You have managed an amazing amount so far considering you have not had the best of luck health wise.

Keep it up it's a great read.
