Comments about Dahlia 'Figaro Mixed':
Didn't plant them straight in bc of snails. I moved them in bigger pots and when they got a bit bigger I replanted. I then had to guard them from the hungry snails - snail pools worked. When they started flowering they were big and strong enough to let the snails have a bite and enjoy. Great colours and flowered well into autumn, until the first frost. They just need to be dead-headed every week. I even collected some seeds. When I wanted to throw them away after the frost had blackened them, I discovered they had grown bulbs and so I took those out and stored them in the garrage. Will see if I can make anything of those next year. If not, I will surely order again.
