Dahlia Tubers Supplied
Top graded plants, although different varieties produce different sized root systems. Grown for at least a year in a nursery field and then lifted in the autumn when dormant. These deciduous plants are mature and cold stored right up until we despatch them. Plant these plants straight into your pots or borders as soon as you receive them. Water them on planting and they will establish over the winter and burst into life in spring. They are carefully packed and delivered to you in a parcel along with other hardy plants and bulbs you may have ordered.
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.
