Flower Gardening: Dahlia Experiments

I was delighted to learn that Dahlia seeds are truly magical. Imagine every seed is a completely new flower profile. A flower that has never existed before! It’s not to say every Dahlia seed will promise the most exotic of blooms. But to find a new earthling, well that is very exciting to me.

You probably know that apple seeds also have the potential for endless alternatives. But apple growers want to insure the familiar taste and quality of the apples they grow so that is why apples are always grown from grafts.

The same is true of Dahlia tubers and cuttings, they are clones of the original mother plant.
