Just to let you know, the Southland Seed Savers network catalogue is out and we are ready for any seed orders you have. The catalogue is available here.
just moved into this place and the former owner was a dahlia lover. I can agree they self seed all over the place, been mowing them there were so many.
Dahlias will grow from seed without any help. I simply let the dead heads fall, and did nothing else. I have about 6 or 7 seedlings. One of them is absolutely gorgeous. They were self-sown, and will usually flower second year.
You can save seed from and mature seed heads. Self sown will not germinate until spring is warm enough, so no special care is needed.
I would give it a go even without the leaves on, you aren't wasting anything if it does not work. I have had one top sprout a new leaf, though I never got it to survive into a new plant.
Hi they cut all the tops off now before they enter the country it is considered a biohazard!
Sadly, most of the pineapples arrive imported without the 'tufts' and have already been cut to the level of the top of the pineapple. Once upon a time, they all arrived with the spikes, but sadly rarely any more
The leaves are the bit that grows. Ask the shop to keep a pineapple for you with all of the leaves still on.
Hi sorry what I mean is they cut down the leaves so there is no green showing at the top of the pineapple, will it grow back?
Sorry, no. Ask the shop for one (or more) of the tops. Question. What do they do with them after they cut them off?
they don't have any at the moment, but will have some soon
