Cutting Garden – Part 2 – Dahlias   Leave a comment

Another great plant for late summer cutting is dahlias.  Like gladioulus, they require a little work in that you have to dig them up in the fall.  I also find it helps to plant them in a pot in the spring, so you can get a little jump on the warm weather.  Then when it’s warm enough, transplant to their garden location.  This one is Thomas Edison, and it makes beautiful cut flowers.  Again, the more you cut the more you get.  So plan ahead for those dog days of August when the garden is looking a little tired, and plant some dahlias to brighten up your backyard and dining room table.
