Dahlias are a bushy, tuberous herbaceous perennial native to Mexico. They are grown for their stunning, brightly-coloured showy flowers. The flower size can range from 1-2 inches across to up to 10 inches across, that’s almost the size of a dinner plate! Because of their ease to grow they are very popular garden plants and bring a splash of colour from summer well into autumn

  • DAHLIA AKITA

    Dahlia ‘Akita’ – 1 per pack

    The Dahlia ‘Akita’ features magnificent blooms of large white tipped chrysanthemum petals in deep crimson shades that blend perfectly into their honey yellow centre. Known as a member of the ‘Dinner Plate Dahlias’ aptly named because of their flowers, which can be as large as 13cm – A true showstopper! They have even won the RHS Award of Garden Merit!

    Their mass of blooms appears from July until the first frost, held up by strong stems amongst vibrant green foliage. Growing to a height of up to 120cm they would be a great pick for any border, or as a cut flower for your home, as they have wonderful vase life! And the more you cut Dahlia flowers, the more you get!

    To get the most out of these wonderful flowers, you should plant them in full sun to light shade and provide consistent moisture during their growing season- make sure the soil does not dry out!

    When planting, choose a sheltered location to protect your Dahlias from strong winds, in well-drained and fertile soil.

    Dahlias should be planted late spring to avoid frost. Alternately start to grow them in early spring indoors and move outside when the weather is warmer which will give them a head start. During the cold winter months cut the plants to the ground. Then cover with a 7.5-15cm (deep) layer of bark chips or garden compost.

    Cultivation suggestions:

    • Insert canes when planting- tie as plant develops.
    • Take off the growing tips once the plants reach approx. 40cm to encourage branching.
    • For bigger blooms restrict the number of flowering stems, remove the two pairs of flower buds developing in the leaf axils below the old bud.
    • Deadhead the flowers as they fade.
    • Bedding dahlias need no staking or de-budding. Take off the growing tips to encourage foliage growth and deadhead frequently.
