Dahlias vary in height, so plant at the front or back of borders or in pots, according to height. Keep the plants well watered during growth. Either lift tubers after flowering and store frost free in dry compost or, particularly in warmer areas, cover with a mulch over winter.
We want your summer flowering bulbs to arrive in great condition and therefore dispatch fresh to you door at the perfect stage for the growing season.
Pre-orders will be dispatched w/c 4th March 2019 for all varieties.
