Dhalia query?

When should i plant out my dalias which i've sow from seed / how big should they be?

    As large as possible or the slugs will get them -they need protection.
    And you can't plant out until after the last frost or you will lose them.
  • Much appreciated, thank you.

    course it depends where you live, but even here (SE UK, fairly near sea) I wouldnt put out any tender plants until at least the end of May probably beggining of June.

    I wouldn’t put mine out until end of May either, by then they are in 6/8” pots and can withstand a bit of slug damage.
