Dahlias extend the summer flowering season and often last until the first frosts. They’re popular as a cut flower and are renowned for offering a huge variety of flower colour and shapes. These tuberous rooted perennials are ideal for gardeners who want to add vibrant colour to their plots late in the summer/early autumn season.
Our dahlia seed packets will produce in excess of 15 dahlia plants. The plants are a mix of gorgoeus 'firecracker' oranges and reds.
Instructions for sowing:
1. Fill a pot or seed tray with moist compost and lightly firm the surface. Gently push your dahlia seeds into the compost.
2. Seedlings will germinate within a couple of weeks. Once the ‘true’ leaves have grown, seedlings are ready to transplant into individual pots. Hold plants by their leaves and gently tease them out of the soil.
3. Gently transplant seedlings in 10cm pots of peat-free, multi-purpose compost, firm and and water well. In mid-May, harden off plants by standing them outdoors during the day and bringing them in at night. Plant them in their final positions once all risk of frost has passed.
