Dahlia Myrtle's Folly


Dahlia Myrtle's Folly

When I first joined GOY in 2010 , my first photo on this site was Dahlia Myrtle's Folly . Here she is 10 years older in 2020. The same tuber.
Looking pretty as ever.

Bathgate. I dig them out every fall (keep them dry) and replant in spring. Not all of them survive that long.

That's a beauty Klahanie. Have you taken cuttings?

9 Sep, 2020

 

I remember you having one Amy. You posted a picture.

Thorneyside, I did take cuttings with several dahlias this year. As an experiment. I've never done it before and really do not know what to do with them over winter.

I kept my cuttings in pots in the greenhouse through the winter. They flowered this year but different colour from the parent plant

This is a real beauty, especially at a good age too. You’ve certainly cared for her well! The colours are striking.

I will then keep it in the greenhouse Thorneyside. Is yours heated?

Kate, I do not see this dahlia around too often. lots of friends comment on it when they come over. It's flower is large and heavy so I have to support it or cut and put in a vase.

No heat , just bubble wrap lined. I keep the tubers in there too, upside down in large pots with newspaper covering, under the staging. (Begonia corms same M.O. as well).
