Hi Verdun, thats interesting I always thought they were just summer flowering annuals, thats why I was surprised to see all of them in flower at the garden centre.  Thanks for that, will be buying some soon.

thank you Sanjy so if I buy them now and put them in the garden, will they die off during the winter and need to be pulled out or will they flower again.  I would like them to flower in the spring until autumn.   Me too, love stocks, they smell and look fabulous.

I want to grow some scented stocks, the garden centre has got loads in all in flower, but I thought they were annuals and grew in the summer, although on the plant info it said they did flower in the summer.  Just wondering why they would have loads in flowering now when and when I should buy them, are they all annuals or can I get perenial stocks.

Verdun, that is what my dahlias are usually like, I'm on the south coast and never dig them up and they come back year after year after disappearing to nothing during the winter, this has been really disappointing to just get the odd flower.  As it has happened on all of them I am wondering if, as someone suggested they could have been fed too much and just produced a load of very healthy looking leaves.

Thanks Paul, yes they are the large border ones.  Actually I was wondering about the feeding, I put miracle gro granules in earlier in the year and I was thinking that the growth was a bit crazy and then no flowers.

Thanks for that Lyn.  Mine is Bishop of Llandaff and we usually have flowers from July, so will await a late flush.  Thanks for the tips on cuttings.

My dahlia's this year have not flowered much, I've had them a few years, but the foliage has been very healthy and lush.  Can you take cuttings from them?

My Dahlia's didnt flower much this year, although the foliage was still as lush.  Is there any way to propagate dahlias from the ones I have.
