  • We liked the look of this at trials with its pointy-petalled flowers in a good mix of colours on semi-dwarf plants; still tall enough to make excellent cut flowers but a good compact plant for the average-sized garden 1½ft (50cm)

    All the Dahlias we offer can be very easily grown as half-hardy annuals and flower the first year from seed.

  • Germination InstructionsSow indoors. Surface sow onto moist well-drained seed compost in a seed tray. Propagate at 18°C. Germination takes 10-14 days. When seedlings are large enough to handle transplant to 8cm pots, handle the root system carefully. Grow on in cooler conditions 7-13°C. Acclimatise and plant out once danger of frost has passed with 100cm spacing. Can be sown in an unheated greenhouse without propagation. Can be sown directly, germination takes 1-2 weeks approx.

    Growing Instructions
