Dahlia Grow-A-Long

Dahlia Tuber Sale Coming Late Winter/Early Spring!

The Dahlia Sale will be back for March 2024!

In past years we have really struggled for enough indoor space to fit in the tubers required for a shop. They take up a lot of room!

It’s been a bit of a mission so we thought it might be fun to show you how we have overcome the space issue and finally share our favourite varieties of dahlias again!

Varieties will be announced closer to the time (lots of new pot varieties).

As always, we wait for the breeders to 100% confirm the harvest for the orders we placed months ago.

Thank you so much to @gbgscoltd (https://gbgs.co.uk/) for supplying and fitting the ground screws, a brilliant concrete free alternative and @shedsdirectnet (https://shedsdirect.net/) for a bespoke build to make the most of the space we had, you can barely even notice it’s there!!

I will email subscribers as soon as the Shop is ready to preview so you can start making your lists!

In the meantime here are my Dahlia Grow-A-Long Videos, just scroll down to find the video you need.

How to deadhead Dahlias too keep plants nice and compact.

Dahlias tend to flower in 3’s once finished bloom, on tall varieties cut stems lower back down to a set of new shoots. Sometime the a growth shoot is part of the trio, in this case we leave that stem to grow on. I have created this video because it much easier to show you!

Stars of the show (so far) in this video are Dahlia Wine Eyed Jill Dahlia Strawberry’s n’ Cream Dahlia Ambition Dahlia Karma Chocolate Dahlia Labyrinth
