Pot Tuber – Dahlia Blyton Stella


Miniature Decorative Dahlia. A stunning lavender pink. 1.2m. Good for Exhibition, Garden and Cut Flower.

Categories: , SKU: BLYSTEtub


A new variety for 2019 which is a little stunner! The rich lavender pink blooms are held at the perfect angle on good stems proportionate to the size of the flowers. Blyton Stella received a very good write up in the 2018 Winter Bulletin and has already created a bit of a name for itself. For the purist exhibitors, the high petal count and easy to match centres should make this a popular choice but it will also prove to be good variety for the garden and for cutflower use as the plants are compact and sturdy growing to just over 1m. Look forward to seeing this on the benches in years to come.

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.

£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  

All orders can be collected from the nursery in which case no carriage fee will be charged.

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.

If you choose to collect your Plants/Tubers from either Halls of Heddon, or The Nursery Ovington (please specify) we will contact you to advise when the order is ready for collection. We will make every effort to supply during the week requested but please be aware that delays may occur, so wait for us to contact you.
