Dahlias as cut flowers

Hi, it's the first time I've ever grown Dahlias and I have been lucky to have some  beautiful ones ( Arabian night) which are in full bloom. If I cut them for cut flowers will I get more flowers from the plant ?

    I think so Lili - its certainly what I am doingimage.  Everyone says they must be deadheaded to keep them flowering.  My way is just "live-heading"image

    Like sweet peas.. the more you pick, the more you get.

    It's not a mess, it's a nature reserve.

    There is a little icon that looks like a tree - just to the right of the one you use to insert a smilieimageimage - click on that and follow the instructions to upload an existing picture from your iPad.....
