Monday Magic – Dahlia Shoots
There’s nothing quite like the sight of dahlia shoots to know that the growing season has really begun. The sun has arrived in UK, and regardless of how fleeting it might be, it looks to be staying for at least a week. I checked the dahlias (which have been wrapped in newspaper and left in a bucket in the store room all winter) and – to my amazement – shoots! Whilst most of the tubers only have a few developing eyes, a couple had some decent growth. So, having washed the greenhouse down this morning, I thought it was time to pop these into some soil ahead of the growing season.
