Are you going to leave them in the pots or transplant them to the garden???

Wow your thumb is definitely green! Yours are bigger than mine and I'm in the south! Smile

Mine overwinter in the ground and are just now emerging. We have a frost/freeze warning for tonight so I covered them up..Frown

mgt- will transplant to the garden if the snow ever leaves and the temps warm up. We might just be skipping spring/summer and going to fall around here.

btw: those dahlias (above)are supposed to get 36" but I also have these (below) which are border dahlias. Their height is 15" which I might keep in a large pot. I still have to pot these up. I've never grown these before.
