New for 2020

I first saw this variety in 2012 at Shepton Mallet with the unusual salmon pink colouring really making it stand out on the benches. The blooms have great depth and stand perfectly placed on strong stems making it a good all-round variety. Grown 5 or 6 up it will produce good even sized blooms that will do well outside though probably a bit on the small size to compete with the best in this section on the benches. Growing to about 1.2 m we found this variety flowered quite early with a good flush of blooms ready for cutting at the end of August from a mid-June stop. Side buds were stripped down 3-4 pairs from the main terminal bud on each stem giving a good length of stem for cutting.  Reliable for growing outside being tolerant of North East Weather. Raised by Mr A Hayes.

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.
