    Beautiful Dahlias but I wont grow them, useless for insects. Have lots of single flowered ones  though image

    I am so pleased with mine, they were one of the 1st things I planted in my new garden in some vain hope of gaining the upper hand - very pleased with the result - but don't take your eyes off them and see the remaining wilderness! Definitely will try more next year.

    Love mine, one of my favourites. Mistake I made was not labelling them so placement is random! Cuttings were successful so I'll do that again, not that I have room for many more. Next year I'll try and match them to the surrounding plants better.

    All of these are large plants with saucer-sized blooms and were grown from seed sown earlier this year:
