Comment by thea stoughtenger zn4,ny on May 9, 2012 at 2:42pm

wow how big is your yard ?

Comment by Mary Ann Morris on May 8, 2012 at 6:22pm
absolutely worth the gas money, but like all auctions, you need to decide your 'price' and stick to your guns! it is like going to the plant auction in the netherlands: you buy a shelf (which may be flats or containers) or the entire 4 shelf rack....we take a 1 ton truck, 14 ft trailer, with floor to ceiling racks!!! Last year, a amish gentle man asked me what nursery we were buying for, it was shocked when I said NO nursery, just my garden! gotta smile

So you went from Minnesota to Iowa to get what you bid on . Now was it worth the gas money to go and get ?

BIG Dahlia Bloom

"Joseph, if you want to grow fabulous dahlias (not the low growing kind), they must be staked. What the hubby and I do is put in a tomato ladder and an 8 foot steel stake at the base of each plant at the time they are planted. We…"
