I had high hopes for these dahlia seeds! I had only grown them from tubers. They sprouted leaves,but never grew buds or blossomed. Pretty disappointed

Owner Response: Hi Jade, Thank you for sharing your experience. Because you are starting will seeds, rather than tubers, these will take some more time to flower. We recommend starting them indoors to give them a head start on the season and earlier blooms. Happy gardening!

Excellent results in western Alaska!

I live in zone 3a (brr!), started these seeds indoors in May, transplanted the starts into my greenhouse in June, and have been enjoying beautiful blooms from August until our first hard frost in mid-October. Sturdy, tall foliage and just a gorgeous array of flowers. The tubers I dug up today look excellent too! Thanks Botanical Interests, you're the best.

I am very happy with how these turned out. Many different shapes and colors. And now I have tubers to replant next spring. I also plan to order the seeds again to see what comes up. Well done Bontanical Interests.
