Dahlia Cactus Mixture

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



Our Cactus & Semi-Cactus Mixture of dahlia tubers contains an exuberant blend of bright, textured dahlias.

The spiky formations of cactus dahlias add interest and structure to garden borders during the summer and autumn months.  The more compact varieties are suitable for container planting, and all are excellent for cutting.

Flowering from July until first frosts, dahlias are well known for blooming prolifically.  Keep picking the stems to enjoy the magnificent blooms indoors, or deadhead spent flowerheads often for a radiant and long-lasting show.

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.
