    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.
