Do you grow dahlias?

My elder daughter bought dahlia tubers last year and grew some beautiful dahlias and she inspired me to buy some tubers and try for myself.

I was able to find a local grower who sold tubers so I was good to go.

I bought three tubers to begin this year and see how I get on.

These are the tubers I bought:

I planted the tubers in the vegetable garden to make sure that they will get regular watering during summer.


The Gange tuber was the last to sprout.  You can see that I have put down snail bait to make sure the new shoots weren’t eaten.  I hope I get some beautiful dahlias.
