Easy to grow, Bambino Dahlias have single to semi double blooms. They are bright and vibrant, just perfect for adding some easy colour to your garden. Bambino Dahlias do not require staking. They are both compact and bushy.
Bambino Dahlias are brilliant garden plants. They are long flowering, with lush foliage. The plants are easy to flower and care for and their compact form makes them perfect for beds and borders.
Bambino Dahlias take around 8 weeks from planting to flowering. Plant your Bambino Dahlias in a sunny spot, they need around six hours of sun a day to flower well. Morning sun is best. Bambino Dahlias are suitable for growing in both garden beds or large pots.
Plant Bambino Dahlias into humus rich, moist, well drained soil. We recommend digging a well rotted cow or sheep manure though the soil prior to planting. Plant the tuber around 10-cm deep. Allow for good air flow between the plants.
You don’t need to water them in, just keep them moist during active growth. Add a slow release Tomato fertiliser in early summer and some Sulphate of Potash, then mulch for best results.
