What you will recieve

Dahlia Pot Tubers

The Tubers we offer are dahlias which have been grown for a full season in the confines of a 4-5″ pot, so that a small compact tuber is produced. They are the 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 packaged 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 50oF (10oC) is required for propogation, 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.
