We have lift-off! 

Dahlia Seedlings

Citizen scientists, It has taken just 4 days for the cotyledons to emerge from the testa and make their way to the surface, where they are now making food, by photosynthesis, for the growing seedling, before they are eventually replaced by the true leaves. The red Dahlia ‘Mignon’ is currently winning the race. I wonder which colour will be favoured by the bumblebees! Grown on behalf of Leasowes Walled Garden www.leasoweswalledgarden.co.uk
