Tel, Mary, I know that you both signed up for the ISO facebook page.
It has been driving me nuts. I wanted to post and see if someone had Candy Jayne in the UK and a couple of other dahlia searches for my Dad's dahlias.
The only thing that was stopping me was my photo albums and I have a lot of photos that I don't want to go through individually resetting who can see them because there are a lot.
Now someone has just posted a photo of a dahlia which looks very similar to Candy Jayne but with (too) long stems. Still want Candy Jayne. Frustrated is not the word for it. There is a lot of discussion about the dahlia which I don't understand because it is not in English but someone did say 'Candy Jayne'.
I'd like to ask a favour, could one of you ask for me (or anyone else that views that facebook page) if anyone knows a UK supplier of Candy Jayne because by the time I have finished going through over 34 albums I am going to miss the moment.
Just a tip with the German posts... use Google translate if you get the feeling it is a post you'd like to read. I just copy and paste the whole thread into Google translate. The grammar is different so now and again you have to use your imagination to create a cohesive thought, but the main points come through. I think maybe one or two words of German are beginning to sink in, too. Yes, I am terminally curious, and I do tend to translate it all!
Example translation from that thread:
"very nice ...... even one that I do not know, LOL ....... sees the Candy Jayne similar"

joysie21: I would like a peiris /azalea/trailing rose/ acer in my borders i see amazon is selling them but they are only in a 9cm pot so they must be small

Cat: Yes not big plants, easy to grow on but not all are fast growing ie azaleas
