Gardeners' Notes:

Positive joeomar On May 7, 2009, joeomar from Elkhorn, NE wrote:

I've been growing the Dahlia "Figaro mix" for three years here in Elkhorn NE (just outside Omaha). I buy the seeds through Park Seeds. I start them indoors under lights, about 4 weeks before planting, and get a very high germination rate. The mix has an astonishing array of colors (I counted 12 distinct colors). For me, the plants grow about 18" and bloom very heavily and continuously all summer and into October. The plants stay quite bushy and strong. They perform far better than the Dahlia "Bishops Children" series, which are rather spindly weak plants that only turn out red flowers for me. I really couldn't be happier with the Figaro's, this year I'm planting around 200.
