Planting dahlia tubers early

Posted: 02/01/2015 at 09:31

Early for me too.......I often see my potted dahlias shooting well before March but I too pinch off early buds and pot on regularly to achieve large plants by June.  I start light watering as soon as shoots are seen.  Large dahlias then to put into large pots or into garden

Sarcoccoca takes some beating right now.  Ok, not an annual but a nice evergreen shrub that will grow most amhwhere

Heliotrope is a fav of mine. grown from seed as an annual or grow the perennial Chatsworth and take cuttings  from it.  The cherry pie bush will fill the garden or add fragrance around doors or pathways
