Favourite dahlia which I grew from seed many years ago has been flowering for over a month. I am giving away seeds to anyone who would like to grow them next year. I sow dahlias early inside and don't plant them out till danger if frost is over - or if before I have to be ready on a daily basis to protect with fleece in case it gets chilly.
If anyone is interested in growing some; send a self addressed envelope with stamp on to the address below and I will send some seeds. It really is a very pretty plant reaching about 3-4' in height, its leaves are rich green and its flowers crimson, on dark reddish stalks which it puts out very freely.
