When do I plant out dahlias, I'm on the lincolnshire/notts border!
Hi Red Dahlia, I planted mine out on 5th May, I'm in Dorset so it's a bit earlier for us down here than where you are but we had a cold night last night and the dahlia's are fine. I put them outside for about two weeks during the day so they're quite happy and already growing well, although the slugs have got four of them
Hi I'm in the NE , Washington, mine have been planted out a bit at a time since early May. I need to slug pellet which I'm loath to do but I need to give them every chance just for a while.
I've planted out one: Dahlia Imperialis from seed I collected on the side of a mountain in Tamil Nadu in Southern India a couple of years ago. The rest are still in an unheated polytunnel.
by " the rest " I mean about 200 others.
That's why I like to get on with planting, back and knees aren't as enthusiastic as I am. So it has to be a few at a time.
HF1 I'm very envious of your seeds from india, visited many times although mostly Goa. Visited Kerala last year, fabulous plants although my Curry plant seeds germinated I lost them later..sad.
Bilje, I've got more seed, if you'd like some.We owned an appartmfent in South Goa for 9 years.
Dahlia Imperialis can grow to 6 metres, yes metres tall.
wow you need a big garden for them then!!!
I have bedding dahlias and then a mixed variety that stands at 3 ft. I'm wondering about taking them out my plastic greenhouse and planting them out now it's warm. But will I regret it?
