     I have bought some reasonably expensive Dalia tubers and read on one packet that they should not be grown in a pot.  Does that make sense?

    I grow all my dahlias in large pots without many problems. This is mainly for reasons of keeping them out of the way of slugs and snails. Also I can group them around the front door then.

    I do find that dahlia tubers from shops and garden centres can be slow to start into growth and soaking overnight in luke warm water can help.
