Categories: , SKU: CLEEDItub

Description

A very promising Large Semi-cactus Dahlia from America. The stunning white blooms have a faint pink overlay, especially when grown under cover. With plenty of depth this variety has the potential to do well on the show bench and seems to stand up pretty well to the North East weather, even without protection. A strong grower up to 1.5 m with flowers up to 260 mm across. We would suggest stopping at 3-4 pairs of leaves about mid June, and if planning on showing restrict the number of flowering stems to 4-5 at the most. For maximum flowering size remove 4-5 pairs of buds below the terminal flowering bud on each stem. Introduced by Clearview Dahlias in 2014.

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.
 

Also available as mini plants and garden ready

£6.95 per delivery for all orders to UK destination. Dahlia Tubers are generally sent 2nd class post. Please note we are unable to dispatch Tubers with live plants so separate delivery charges will apply

Please note we are unable to package Dahlia Tubers  with  Dahlia Mini Plants, Garden Ready Dahlias or Chrysanthemums. If separate deliveries are required then additional carriage and packing will need to be applied to the order.
