Two part question:
1) I planted two dahlia-tubers in late April/early May. They both had an eye on them, and I planted them about 15cm (6 inch) deep.
It's the 31st of may now, and I am not yet seeing any shoots come up. I'm a little worried that I may have planted them too late/too deep, and that I'll only have a very short blooming period until the first frost comes (november).
Can anyone tell me how long it will be until these dahlias come up + how long I will be able to enjoy their flowers?
2) I had also planted some other Dahlia-tubers in the ground a bit earlier, and they are just starting to show small leaves coming up through te soil. How long will it be approximately until these start flowering? I am planning to pinch out the top when they grow a bit more.
Much obliged for your insight!
(I am a beginner when it comes to Dahlias. For those who are interested, the varieties I have this year are "Playa Blanca" "Peaches & Cream" "Bluesette" and "Rosella")
