Flirty, fun, and playful, dahlia 'Take Off' certainly knows how to turn heads.

Perfect for a starring role in herbaceous borders and cottage gardens, where the soft colours will add an air of romance to your planting scheme. Borne on sturdy stems, ‘Take Off’ makes a superb cut flower, stealing the show in bouquets and arrangements with its beguiling charm. Flowering tirelessly from July until the first frosts, this dahlia will gladly dance the summer away, providing months of pleasure in your garden.

Care Guide

To grow Dahlias, select a sunny spot with well-drained soil, and dig a 30cm deep hole. Plant the tuber 10cm below the soil surface, spacing multiple tubers 45cm apart, or 90cm for taller varieties. Water consistently, maintaining moist but not saturated soil and protect new shoots from slug damage with eco-friendly methods. Feed plants during the blooming period with liquid plant food. Provide support for stems which will reach 60-90cm tall depending on variety. Enjoy spectacular blooms from late summer until first frosts. Cut or deadhead the flowers regularly for a continually flourishing display. Once blooming has finished, cut back foliage before lifting, drying and storing the tubers in peat-free substitute, in a frost-free place until the following spring.
