Dahlias are an absolute delight and make brilliant garden plants. They are long flowering, with lush foliage, come in a huge array of colours shapes and sizes, and are easy to care for. What’s more, they can be left to colour your garden or bought inside to fill your vases. Let’s face it, Dahlias have so many flowers, it is easy to do both with blooms from December to April.

Dahlias take around eight weeks from planting to flowering and can be grown in gardens, or large pots.

Dahlia flowers are excellent for cutting, and last well in a vase, and by cutting the flowers you will encourage more blooms. When you cut the flowers, it is a good idea to do it in the morning as they have higher moisture content and so will last longer. Cut the stems so you are taking at least two leaves, this prunes the plant back far enough to encourage more flowers and bushy growth. Any spent flowers left on the plant should be removed as they brown, in a similar cutting method to encourage more blooms.
