I live in Baltimore, MD and have dahlia tubers to plant but want the flowers for a big party June 25th. When is the best time to plant in order to have the most blooms by June 25th? Thank you much.

It is doubful that you will have flowers by June 25th. I start mine inside in March and still do not usually start to get flowers until middle of July.

If they are the short garden ones you might get some flowers by June if you get them started now inside.

Thank you for your response. Mine are supposed to get 18" stems. If I plant them on the sunny side of the yard, outdoors, & we don't get frost or freeze, do you think I have a decent chance for flowers by June 25th?

Hello,
I looked at all your beautiful photos and discovered the name of the shrub a friend gave to me a few years ago, bridal veil. I've been searching for an ID for 1 year. I'm so happy!

My neighbor has some of that too and I really think it is pretty. I'm not suppose to put shrubs in the garden although sometimes it's hard to follow the rules on things like that.
