Dahlia ‘Melody Bolero’ proves the old adage that sometimes the best things come in small packages. Like a petite opera singer who fills the theatre with her powerful voice, this compact yet charismatic variety provides remarkable impact. The bantam-sized plant is smothered in masses of ravishing, rounded, scarlet red blooms, capturing the attention of all who pass by. Reaching a height of 40cm, ‘Melody Bolero’ is a perfect choice for filling containers, enlivening patio displays, and planting at the front of borders. You will be rewarded by a lyrical performance for months on end, from July to October. Encore!

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.
