Dahlia 'Seattle'


Dahlia 'Seattle'

New dahlia I picked up this year. Really performed until my vacation, then it started just getting by.....I've got it recovering with a larger pot and some new blooms before the cold sets in. It will be reserved over the winter of course to be divided for next year. Really bright, exciting coloring.

Thank you. I get such mixed reactions from Dahlias, even a love for one month and then stubborn nothing for another. I've started heavy feeds monthly (I don't favorite high-concentrate fertilizers but use them for the dahlia) as well as good high compost soil additions as I pot up throughout the year. Seems to keep the blooms coming and the the greens dark and thick.

I love it. First year for me and I'm sold! It'll be a bit of a chores manging such a massive thing, but well worth it. :-) (I will have to reserve it over winter each year, I'm sure its already giant. )

I give mine tomato food to try and boost the blooms...

THey are hungry things aren't they? I've been debating another strong feed, but it was a good freeze last night, first of the year, so I'll be putting that off. Nothing looks done in, but I wont really know until tonight.

Thank you Constancesp. This one has stunned me with each flower. Unexpected, and I even had a picture to go from.
