Oh post pics! I came here from the pond forum, and there are several others I recognize from there, so plenty of us love fish. I’ve always had a black thumb, so I’ll pick your brain at some point on how to best grow roses ( cause I bought one on sale, it was too sad, but will be pretty if I don’t kill it!)

i dont know about dahlias,what i do for the dahlias is give them miracle grow,dahlias are heavy feeders.i plant a lot of flowers in and around the pond.if you want to add color to your pond take the small cell impatiens you can use the sun or regular in shade wash off all the dirt and bare root them place it in a wet spot in the pond or water fall, i have them grown 3 to 4 ft in diameter with lots of color.
