Thanks every one for your advice. Verdun, I think I will take your advice and dig up a couple and see what I have. If they are ok then dig up the rest. Cheers

I have grown dahlias for the first time and have had a wonderful display. Unfortunately I have left them in the ground, there has been quite a severe frost and now, following a spell of very wet weather, the ground is soaked.

Is it better to lift them now and store or leave them in the hope they will survive? If it makes any difference to the answer I live in Northern Brittany which has a Cornish like climate and the soil is on the loamy side. Hope some one can help. Thank you, Wadie

Talkback: How to take lavender cuttings

Posted: 24/11/2011 at 15:27
I found the step by step instructions on taking lavener cuttings easy to follow. However, step six does not give ytou any indication as to how long you should leave them so that you will know they are well rooted. As a novice gardener I have no way of telling wthout pulling one up and this would be at the risk of disturbing them.
