I am new to flowers, and I amI am new to flowers, and I am planning on growing dahlias for cutting. I live in the north napa valley, zone 9. I ordered a variety of heirloom seeds.should I start them indoors now? Should I direct sow them? Do they take longer from seed than from tubers? If I had a vegetable garden in the plot last year, do I need to amend the soil? It's valley floor here, so it's got some clay in it. Thanks
