FAQ: Help! I'm new here... What do I do?
|» Where do I go first?|
Look on the right hand side of your screen. There are links that take you to different areas on this forum, and you should really check them out!
The most important four:
1. Articles- this gives you an overview of the care dahlias require, and explains the codes that tell growers what type of variety they are growing. Well worth the time to read!
2. FAQ (frequently asked questions)- the best place for a quick answer on growing dahlias. A great place to learn the basics, and ask for more information. Most questions are answered within the same day.
3. Database- there is a variety archive that has images and descriptions of many popular types of dahlias. You may search for a specific variety, or add one that we haven't documented yet!
4. Forums- careful- you can get lost for DAYS in there! The forums group different discussion threads together according to topic, and go back for years. It's amazing what gems of wisdom or silly chit-chat you can uncover... Feel free to join in on the discussions! If you have a question after reading older threads, you can re activate them by adding a comment at the bottom of the thread. Or, to be part of what's being talked about currently, lurk on the 'recent threads' section on the main page, and jump in when you wish.
