Six months ago, I started some dahlias from seed. I put the plants in the barrel at school, but they didn’t thrive there. So I pulled a couple of the surviving plants back out of the barrel and put them in a pot. They’ve been growing on my lanai for two months now.
They have finally bloomed. Whew! So much work and waiting! Six months from seed to bloom? That’s crazy! I think next time, I’ll just buy plants.
