Dahlias:  Dos And Don'ts

By Sharon
October 1, 2015

My love for dahlias got off to a really slow start. I much preferred soil beneath my fingernails than for those same nails to be blackened by bruises from driving dahlia stakes into the ground. And the truth was, dahlias had no other purpose on earth than to stand around looking totally tall and beautiful. I liked plants that had a reason for being, like tomatoes. Now there was a plant worth growing even if it did need to be staked.

Are you the same lady who wrote the mountain article I so enjoyed about the mountains in Kentucky, walking up the mountain to an aunts cabin, and looking in the beautiful mountains for, was it Turks Caps??? Something that had lovely blooms but the tubers could also be eaten??

Maybe so, Donna. I've written a lot of articles about Aunt Bett and my adventures with her and her medicinal/food plants.

This is the only one I've written about Turks Cap lilies:

Happy Fall!!
