    Hey girl, your dahlia’s are so pretty. I’m a flower grower also and have grown dahlia’s in the past but stopped because I disliked staking them. I like your idea of using tomato cages and I think I will give them another try next spring. Here in SE Virginia (Zone 8A) we do not have to dig up the tubers in the winter. “Nicholas” is beautiful!

    Hi, I was wondering if you would share the website you order your Dahlias from. I I’ve been growing some for the past 5 years and I think I need to reset my beds. Some of mine have not grown as well as they have in years past so I think they might be past their prime. After the first year I got wise and also started using tomato cages as well. My Dad gave me all the cages he had.(He started growing his tomatoes on strings tied up to a clothes line) However this year 2 of my flowers, have started to topple those cages so I’m trying to figure out what to do next.

    I just had the chance to visit a gorgeous garden north of Baltimore which has an amazing collection of dahlias. Here

    You may have convinced me to try dahlias. And thank you for my new stripper name, Randi Dawn. So can a Magic Mike dahlia be far behind?

    You have some beautiful dahlia’s, they do make great cut flowers. It has been a long time since I had them in my garden, I may have to plant some next year, you have inspired me : ) Thanks for sharing.

    The flowers are beautiful but PLEASE write a follow up next year and let us know how the overwintering of the bulbs went. I have gardened for many years. My friends and neighbours come to me for plant slips and advice but I have never been able to successfully complete the fall dig up/spring replant/summer grow, gosh darn it! cycle

    Hi Victoria, I just saw this post now and something you might find worth your perusal is the website belonging to some local (up here) growers of beautiful dahlias. Their name is Ferncliff Gardens and they do mail order (from Mission, British Columbia, Canada) Just google it – you’ll find them <3
