    Slugs can decimate them.image They need a lot of water, should not be a problem this month??

    When did you plant them? Are these Dahlia's that haven't come back from last year?

    Earwigs and slugs can both be a problem as they both like the succulent leaves.

  • I've had mixed results with mine this year. One pot of Bishop of Llandaff are growing very well, while another of Waltzing Matilda perished as it was too wet. I looked at the tubers last weekend and they are pretty well rotted I've also grown some from seed - Bishops Children - which flourished until I hardened them off. While half are still flourishing and leafy, the other half got eaten by slugs and are just bare stalks. One can live in hope for a new set of leaves though
