Maroon & Orange Dahlia Mix
We adore this flamboyant twosome, both for picking, and adding pizazz to the garden.
This delightful duo combines burgundy beauty ‘Arabian Night’, with contrasting zesty ‘Garden Jubilee’, featuring warm orange flowers.
Plant together for an impactful garden display, rich in tones which will take your garden seamlessly from summer, into autumn.
The large flowers will bloom in profusion from July until late October.
Keep cutting stems to enjoy in flower arrangements and bouquets, the blooms will last for up to a week in fresh water.
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.
