Dahlias are beautiful and last summer was my first try with them and I was hooked. My grandmother always grew tall red ones on the side of the house in Georgia, just beautiful. The tall ones require stalking because some grow 3-5 feet. Although I stalked mine, I didn't keep close watch and instead of attaching them to the stake as they grew I loss track and they started to curl and grow low to the ground. Beside zinnias, they put on the best blooming floral summer display until frost, and I love blooms.
|The hyacinths look like end of season bulbs but are still firm and hopefully will be beautiful in the spring.|
|The web site said they're a mixture of tulips so each bloom will be a surprise.|
|I'm going to dig out some pots and plant some in containers for spring. It has to be done this weekend. The bulbs are firm and so far I've only picked out a few moldy ones but they need to be planted this weekend.|
