Dahlias are brilliant garden plants. They are long flowering, with lush foliage, they are easy to flower and care for and come in a huge array of colours shapes and sizes. Dahlia flowers are excellent for cutting, lasting a week or more in a vase. And they just keep giving, by cutting the flowers you will encourage more blooms.

Dahlias tubers take around 8 weeks from planting to flowering. Plant your Dahlia tuber in a sunny spot into moist, humus rich, well drained soil. Water in well then keep moist during active growth.
