Whether you are a serious grower or just need some extra flowers for your garden this is a great book.Dahlias are generaly easy to grow, but can be tricky to grow well.It contains a lot of info on the history, culture, habit,propagation and care. It is relevent to both northern and southern hemispheres as it has a season converter and is in metric and imperial.The photos are sharp and clear and cover everything from petal shapes to full heads.This is a great general reference book.
This book taught me everything I needed to know to battle bugs and fight fungus. I couldn't put them in the ground due to ground squirrels in southern CA that love to eat bulbs. I grow all mine in clay pots and now they're much healthier and beautiful. I'm always taking pictures of them! This is a great book!
THIS IS A GREAT BOOK ON DAHLIAS, MY FAVORITE FLOWER. SINCE THERE ARE SO MANY DAHLIA VARIETIES IT IS HARD TO GET THEM ALL IN ONE BOOK BUT THIS BOOK GIVES IT A GOOD SHOT. THE PICTURES ARE BIG AND BEAUTIFUL AND THE CULTIVATION RECOMMENDATIONS ARE SPOT ON. GREAT BOOK IF YOU LOVE THIS FLOWER.
I am brand new to the Dahlia world and bought this book as a primer. I had done some research online and everything I found online was nicely condensed in this book. It teaches you the basics such as planting and care plus teaches you all of the 'codes' for sizes, colors, forms, etc. It really is very helpful to someone who knows little about dahlias. Plus, the pictures are beautiful and nicely identifies the plant form, so you can learn some of the various types.
Got this book for my husband for his birthday. It's full of beautiful photos and he likes that it gives good detailed info on diseases with pictures so you can see what the book is talking about. He is very happy with it and hasn't put it down since he opened it. Perfect for this time of year when we are in 6-12 inches of snow.
Nice catalog of varieties with beautiful color photos. Covers all of the basics including planting, cultivating, cutting, exhibiting, and dealing with the various challenges. A must have for the Dahlia enthusiast.
It was a gift for a friend who doesn't like to read so it needed to have lots of pictures. Birthday boy says he loves it, especially the pictures!
