You may think I'm bragging

Actually Richard has a point.

I suggest you do exactly as he says. They're your own them and offer them to various nurserymen.  And carry on with your hybridising.  You've done fantastically well otnorot

Hiya leekie and welcome to the forum

Any rabbits?  Do they like dahlia tubers?  Or mice perhaps?  If rabbits there would likely be tell tale green bits around the,dahlias

Bookertoo, sounds nice....very nice indeed

Leaves turning white/yellow

Thought it was damage from cold winds at first but now agree that they look like they have been sprayed with something.  Did you mulch with dried manure?  In hot sun....we have had some....the fumes cam scorch leaves.  Or over generous with fertiliser perhaps?  Did you liquid feed them?  Maybe residues of weedkiller or something in the watering can?

Someone mention cake?

Good evening FORKERS.

 Sorry you're poorly garden girl.  Better weather this weekend to cheer you up.

Been lucky rain at all but some parts around here did.  In fact it's been sunny albeit cold.  

Planted top part of my garden delphinium and lupins there but added echinaceas, bonariensis, and cosmos.  It's a blue part.....geranium Orion and black beauty, ceratostigma, blue salvias, linum perenne, caryopteris sterling silver, etc.....but have cannas and crocosmia Lucifer as well as some shrubs so will hopefully give nice colour.  

Had echinacea Tiki Torch there last year but the wet winter finished them off..fed up with that.  Loved those plants.

Enjoy evening folks
