While waiting for my husband to pick up some electrical parts needed for yet another DIY home project I wondered over to the garden department. This package of dahlia seeds were laying next to the summer bulbs. I’ve always grown my dahlia from the tubers that I plant in late spring. I start the plants in the greenhouse in early April so they have some green showing just in time for my May 20 planting day. This year I think I’m going to be adventurous and try some of the dahlias from seed.
Facebook Friends on #gardenchat
You know me…. I of course had to share the package of seeds on Facebook with #gardenchat community before purchasing. With in the first few comments from Monica Milla ,Llyod Travern Sarah O’Neil and Mary Carton knew I better buy two packages!
