I'm new to Dahlias, but how can I not become addicted to a plant, that comes in so many beautiful forms, colors and sizes?
I started collecting them just last year, but it's becoming a passion second only to my passion for Canna Lily
I saved the bulbs (or rhizomes not sure) from last year, and to my surprise they all made it!
The first to bloom is a mini red, in the greenhouse

Thanks! :)
I propagate from rhizome division because in Spring and end up with way too many of each kind so I doubt I will need cuttings. I get the compost from a Nursery

I got a bunch new Dahlias this year, I can't wait to post them in bloom!

Same here! I am sure they are the right ones as labelled. I have ordered quite a few different kinds of irises and lo and behold, my garden is now full of Indian Chief ... They literally TOOK OVER! :banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::cry::cry::cry::cry:

Don't get me wrong, I love them, but not in form of a jungle! :eek::LOL:

Is it French? You'll have to translate. From learning Spanish, I recognize "mal - bad" and "pense - thought," so I think you are accusing me of dirty thoughts. :p :LOL:

Compost - Dirt - Dirty...

Google translate will do it for you. y pense. I think it's French. But my French is limited. You've guessed it. Clever girl.

Irises are great but yeah, that!
I hope you'll post your Dahlias too, when they bloom. :)

They're beauties Gemma! I just noticed a half hour ago that I've got my first dahlia bloom.
Thank you! I'd like to see yours if you have pics :)

I lost count on how many I have, perhaps this thread will help me count them all
