New for 2020

Delightful soft pink flowers with white blends to the tips are borne freely on this recently introduced variety from John Willott. The strong growing plants get to a height of approx. 1.2 m with good stem strength. This will make a good garden and cut flower variety as well as being useful for the show bench having good depth to the blooms and good form. When growing from young plants we would suggest removing the growing tip to leave 4-5 pairs of leaves and then allow 8-10 flowering stems to develop. Removal of side buds (disbudding) on each of these stems will give better flower size and longer stems. Make sure plants are kept will supported by caning and tying in throughout the growing and flowering season.

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

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.
