    I had been convinced (by lots of other folk) that growing dahlias from seed would be tricky! But You came to the rescue Ben with your easy peasy guide and I gave it a go! Great germination rates and I now have a huge amount of very healthy looking dahlia plants from seed. Just waiting for them to flower now-exciting to see what colour they will be!! Can I save the tubers of any I particularly like?

    My vases will thank you for their bounty!

      ha! Good stuff….yes it is easy…and yes you can use the tubers to get bigger plants the following year. The red ones are my favs. It is SOOOOOOOO much more cost effective to grow from seed….tubers cost a fortune.
