    JS Bach is listed at Parkers but out of stock.
    Gina Lombaert you'll find on the national dahlia collection site

    A beautiful dinner-plate variety, I have that one plus, Belle of Barmena and Labyrinth. Another one I bought last year Otto's Thrill, because of the weather (I presume) only managed one flower - but it was gorgeous
    I've ordered a few smaller flowered ones this year, to mix & match in the bunches, Wizard of Oz (pale pink pompom) Snowflake (white pompom) and Linda's Baby (pale apricot pompom). Plus City of Leiden, a bright pink cactus.

    My dahlias grow like weeds and I never have a problem with them.
    I will say they were late flowering in the past year due to lack of rain but otherwise they were fine.
    I never lift them and think this may add to them becoming more robust year on year.
    Thank you Bramble
