I just love Dahlias. The blooms are so showy and are beautiful. Dahlias are so easy to grow and you can dig them up for the next yaer. You do have to stake them because they get heavy and fall over. When I plant my tubers after covering them with soil I put a tomato cage right over where I planted them. The dahlias grow right up through the cage and you can't even see the wire cage. I start my dahlias in early May, the plant takes awhlile to grow so if it does frost the plant isn't up yet. I have started them inside in pots. That takes alot of potting soil though. It seems when I just put them in the ground they end up catching up with the ones I start inside.
I found this website from another blog and they have a great selection. Swan Island Dahlias
