Description Sowing More Info Delivery Reviews

A vibrant mixture of delicate single flowers in several colours with many bicolour shades, Tall and free flowering, makes it ideal for adding height to bedding displays or filling gaps in perennial borders. Height 5 feet. Planting distance 27 inches.

Culinary note: All dahlia flowers and tubers are edible. The flavours and textures can vary greatly depending on the soil and conditions in which they were grown. Flavours range from water chestnut through to a spicy apple or even carrot. For more details about edible flowers click here.


1 packet (25 dahlia seeds) (26407)

Sow March to April on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays. Do not cover the seed. Keep at a temperature of between 15-20C (59-68F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 7-21 days.

When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3 inch) pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise young plants to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 30-45cm (12 to 18 inches) apart.

For best results, provide a rich, moist, well-drained soil in full sun. Lift tubers in autumn before frosts and store in cool, dry and frost-free conditions over winter.
