Woohoo! 💃🏻 Dead chuffed to see a flower on this...thought I’d killed it when I had to move it, and it broke in two, earlier in the year! Happy dahlias! 👍🏼🤭😊 have a good one flowers 🌸

Gawjus, I pulled the stem away from the tuber on that really dark one I have, shoved it back in and it grew, couldn't believe it 😘

Morning Rachel, what a beauty 💖, my dahlias suffered this year as I lifted them last autumn and didn’t put them back in until late spring much smaller blooms as a result .

Morrrrning Mo, thank you ☺️ I didn’t plant mine til later either, definitely not been as good! The ones I leave in the ground (including this one) seem to do much better! @mojo

Aww 😘 you should’ve got them Jayney...they’d be fine in a pot. I know you have loads of pots...a couple more wouldn’t hurt surely! 😉 @jaynehynesburton
