Well this sorry picture is to herald the No-show, from the Bishop of Llandaff ❤️ Hes not even late to the party, has just not bothered at all!! Thankfully the Bishops of York and Dover were far more polite and have turned up with buds on. I dug up Llandaffs body, and it's plump, firm and hydrated...did I invite a dead Bishop??🤔 #dahlia #dahliaadvice #bishopofllandaff

Sounds like a very lazy Bishop, are you sure the tops aren’t being eaten by slugs or snails Jason, that happened to one of mine last year 🤔🤨

That seems rather strange, it seems as if the tuber was in good condition 🤔

I've never tried Dahlias from seed, I find it hard enough from a tuber 😂 @gjones

Typical! Treat yourself to one from the GC - you deserve it! 😃👍

No, definitely not a pest. All 3 were in pots sided by side, same watering, feeding, same brand from same GC, never a nibble on the other 2. When I dug the tuber up, there's absolutely no sign of growth at all, still watering it in case 🤷‍♂️ Guess I should just bin it, and get another next year. @sieveheadsarah

Deeply religious family, spent way to much of my time having to pray, to carry on doing it now!! @joannie.a

Some of them behave better than others Jason - Bishop of Leicester is a little tinker😂
