Decorative Dahlia Mixed
A wonderful medley of decorative dahlia varieties. This collection contains top-sized tubers which will produce magnificent blooms in beautiful shades, and a variety of plant sizes.
Plant the tubers in late spring to create a colourful tapestry of long-lasting colour.
The flowers bloom from July until first frosts in late autumn. Keep picking the stems to add to floral arrangements, or deadhead spent flowers to encourage buds to form.
Within this carefully chosen mix are all reliable, named varieties of decorative large and waterlily dahlias.
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.
