Absolutely wonderful. 😍🌸 They always seem to start slow but put on a growth & flowering spurt from mid August, until the first frosts kill them off. These are fabulous. 👌💝🌸

Beautiful & fascinating! Are those petals completely tubular? It's like a circle of foxglove flowers 💜👍 🌸

I stopped feeding mine after I read it promotes too much foliage and not enough flowers. Although I can't say I've got either! 🙈 my Dahlias are huge too, and to be honest some I pinched out and some I didn't and it doesn't seem to have made any difference! 😬
