Ball & Pompom Dahlia Golden Sceptre
Petite, honeycomb-textured golden globes cover dahlia ‘Golden Sceptre’ when it blooms during late summer.
The ochre flowers appear with darker, gilded central petals, and are held aloft on tall stems which nod in the border.
Blooms reliably and in profusion, ‘Golden Sceptre’ also makes a wonderful cut flower. The miniature pompon flowers add cheerful pops of colour to flower arrangements and bouquets.
A glorious dahlia to enliven a planting scheme with studs of sunny yellow.
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.
