Don't dilly-dally with your Dahlias

The trouble with dahlias is that they tend to conjure up images of men on allotments growing flourecent blooms for the local flower show.  They are seen as old fashioned, which is a shame because there are hundreds to choose from, they flower prolifically and are pretty easy to grow.

Yes, it's that time of year when keen gardeners want to start sowing seeds. We know we should probably wait. But, we just can't help ourselves.
