I received a call today from Doc Peters, a retired pathologist from Mercy Hospital, where we worked for many years. His news.....the dahlias are waking up for the season! It's time to order any tubers I may want.
He has over 2000 tubers. You should see his dahlia garden mid summer. It's fabulous.
So, I'll take about a dozen off his hands (of the 2000) . He says, Barb, I think you'd like Collector, and St. Charles, Hilltop or how about Western Spanish Dancer. I just call them the little white one with long fingers or the tall one that's red. He understands my simple mind.
So, I will pick them up today and probably start them in the house this year as it's definitely early.
I'm so pleased he remembers me every year! Thanks, Doc!~
