Has the stupid rain murdered my dahlia?

    Well Nollie, given all the helpful advice from experienced gardeners and Becrolla's insistence that it will live, I don't think my comment was out of line.   Let's hope he or she has learned something which helps them be more successful in future.

    A little googling suggests this was a "bedding Dahlia" not a tuber/common dahlia we normally think of.    

    you can buy seed and grow as annual, apparently.

    so, get some seed, a seed tray and seed compost, around march and get yourself a hundred of these things for less than you paid at the show.      Result!

    Ooooh excellent news!

    I had a packet of dahlia seeds in a magazine this year..only sowed some of them and now have two fine plants.  Give it a go next year!

    And I never give up hope on my plants until they have turned into compost...
