Dahlia Bishop of Canterbury have vivid cerise/purple flowers which contrast well with its sensational dark foliage. They will produce an abundance of stunning flowers from June to October. They prefer to be in a sunny location, and look superb in pots on the patio or in a sunny border. The single open nature of its blooms make it an excellent late source of nectar for bees and butterflies, and other pollinating insects. It's perfect for cutting, deadhead regularly and feed with a potash-rich fertiliser to prolong flowering. Height 60-70cm. Top grade tubers supplied.

Dahlia tubers can be planted 10cm deep in fertile well drained soil, outdoors in spring when the frost has disappeared. They prefer to be in a sunny location and spaced at approximately 45cm apart.
In areas where there is extreme cold, dig up dahlias and store in a cool peat over the winter. Apply a high potash fertiliser every few weeks in the summer to help growth and they can be dead headed when necessary.
