This is the second year in my garden, taking lots of self seeded trees, grasses and bushes out - oh and ivy- learning lots @shascreenplay

It just keeps giving #dahlia #starperformer @Sephy - can I get seeds from this dahlia? 🤔

I can't give you a sure answer because I'm a beginner with dahlias too. the best thing that you can do is pull some of the petals out of the centre to expose more innards for the pollinators and pray Haha I'm doing the same atm with my karma Naomi but I dunno if some are sterilised. I need some research books ordered on them methinks 😉👌👍✌🌌🌠🌌🧘‍♂️

Ah I see - it’s more technical than I thought 💭. Then do the seeds fall out?

@ublaszko oh they’re great 👍🏻 never done it before- I had to restart a few times cos of slugs 🐌 but so gorgeous- only thing is they don’t name variety 🤔

comment
ublaszko

Yep it's annoying that they don't have the name of the variety but to be honest Wilkos labels are so inaccurate I wouldn't rely on it even if it did have it. I bought a bunch of spring bulbs from Wilko last autumn and at least 4 varieties were the wrong cultivars and even had a different species of plant once. 😅

Btw, I compared my photos with pics online and here on GT and this one is either Karma Naomi or Arabian Nights.

Will have a look at those varieties thanks Ursula @ublaszko just looked and the karma is a much darker one 😉😊

comment
ublaszko

I think it might be more likely Arabian Nights as Wilko sell this variety as an individual tuber.

comment
sharonhayden

@ublaszko - sorry didn’t explain myself I think it’s Arabian night as it’s lighter than the karma one!

These #dahlias are so velvety and lush- and I grew them from bulbs which kept getting eaten- so am pleased with my persistence💪🏻

Beautiful. My dahlias were a mass of colour this time last year only a couple of little ones out so far this year - way behind ☹️🌺

@grandmagizzy I’m so happy they have come on well - first time I brought the tubers - they got eaten a few times but have come back - it’s been very dry here - maybe it’s the weather?

Mine were better when soooo dry last summer - less slugs about to eat them as they come thru too - the slugs seem to like it wet🤣
