Dahlias

The dahlia is an easy to grow bulb flower. It is a very vigorous flower that will not fail you. This is, of course, in addition to the fact that they are beautiful to look at. Dahlias are known for their wide variety of colours: pink, yellow, white, red, orange… only blue is absent from the dahlia’s colour palette. The dahlias we sell are available in so many different shapes and colours, you will find it hard to believe that they are all part of the same family!

Caring for Dahlias

In order to get the most out of your dahlias, make sure that you plant your dahlia bulbs in good humus-rich garden soil. Make sure that you keep the soil moist, especially during the flowering season. Your dahlias will also need extra water during long dry spells in the summer. This does not mean that dahlias do not enjoy sun. As they originate from Mexico, it is not surprising that dahlias will flower more profusely when planted in a sunny spot. The more sun your dahlias get, the better they will thrive and the better they will look. This makes finding a good spot to plant dahlias quite straightforward. Be aware that young dahlias are very attractive to snails and slugs, so you may need to protect your dahlia crop from being eaten.
