GD, delay in planting out just yet.....esp with forecast this coming week
Pots look big enough as far as I can see
I pinch everything so,,yes, I would pinch at least a couple of times more.
one of my jobs recently, incl today, was to pot on dahlias into large pots and I mix up mpc, dried manure, pelleted chicken manure and fish blood and bone. Last year I compared growing them with this mix and with those grown in mpc. Plants were stronger,,more floriferous and healthier. interestingly too, they were pest free. The only additional feed was a monthly spray with seaweed....this seems to make plants unpalatable to slugs,,etc.
