Re: Help please

Sally Ann,

Here's an url for a Dahlia pub:

I would think the culture, depth, etc would be similar, but hopefully
someone else who's actually grown this Snail Vine b4 could give you more
exact info. Seed you could soak (T&M suggests nicking), but I wouldn't
think you'd soak a tuber if it's like a dahlia tuber. On the other hand,
you do soak anemone tubers. Hmmmmm... How hard is your Vigna tuber?

> Thanks ! That explains it! I wonder if I should soak them...glad I didn't
plant them before now as they would have rotted!...I got them last June
I took the Historic Landscape Restoration course. Any suggestions from the
group would be appreciated as I've never planted tubers before...How deep?
fertilizer? when?

If you have weeds, you don't have enough plants.
