Description

Still one of the more popular varieties for the show bench in this section with its compact and free flowering habit also making it a good choice for general garden display. When growing from young mini plants it is advisable to remove the growing tip once the plants are growing strongly and have produced 5-6 pairs of leaves. All the resultant flowering stems can then be allowed to develop though to achieve bigger blooms the number of stems can be reduced to 6-7 and each stem lightly disbudded by removing 2 or 3 pairs of buds below the main terminal bud on each stem. Strong growing plants get up to 1.25m so need secure staking and tying in. Regular removal of dead flowers will help provide a longer display. This variety tends to produce a lot of basal growth with the potential of a really good second flush of flowers if the season allows. However, removing some of this will enhance the quality of early blooms.

Dahlia Pot Tubers  

The tubers we offer are dahlias which have been grown for a full season in the confines of a 4” or 5” pot, so that a small compact tuber is produced. They are ideal material for the exhibitor with a heated greenhouse or propagator to enable their own propagation. Tubers are available from DECEMBER to FEBRUARY and are packed in polythene sleeves with vermiculite. We strongly advise unpacking on arrival and if necessary store tubers in a cool frost free environment until required for setting away. A minimum of 50F (10oC) is required for propagation, water sparingly until growth is evident. Should any tuber fail to have shown any signs of growth by the end of March then please contact us so we can aim to organise replacements as rooted cuttings. Please note Pot Tuber numbers are limited so order early to avoid disappointment.
