    These award winning dahlias are proven performers for your beds and pots. All have receicved the Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural society. They are great for cutting, and this will encourage more flowers to come and take their place - just make sure you leave plenty for the border too!

    In each collection you will receive one tuber of each of the following cultivars.

  • DahliaGallery 'Rembrant' (PBR) (Gallery Series)
    The colouring of this decorative dahlia is sublime. As the flowerheads open, the innermost 'petals' are a creamy mango, but as they age they turn sugar pink. Grows to 40cm.

  • Dahlia 'Gallery 'Art Fair' (PBR) (Gallery Series)
    The chartreuse buds of this decorative dahlia opens to greenish cream flowerheads that appear over several months from midsummer. The dahlias in the gallery series are all relatively low-growing, which makes them ideal for pots or front of border positions. Grows to 40cm.

  • Dahlia 'Gallery Leonardo' (PBR) (Gallery Series)
    This is a great little performer, that will keep on producing its salmon-pink flowers well into autumn if it is deadheaded regularly. Its many-'petalled' flowerheads that can grow as large as 15cm across. Grows to 40cm.

  • Garden care: Dahlia tubers can be planted outside after frost, or started off in pots under glass in late winter to early spring. Plant them horizontally approximately 12cm deep, making sure the ‘eyes’ are uppermost. Allow enough room between each tuber so the plants can grow and spread to their full size without being over-crowded. While in growth, provide a high-nitrogen liquid feed each week in June, then a high-potash fertiliser each week from July to September. Stake with canes or brushwood if it becomes necessary. In mild areas, leave them in situ over winter, but protect the crown with a generous layer of dry mulch. In colder areas, carefully lift and clean the tubers once the first frosts have blackened the foliage and allow them to dry naturally indoors. Then place the dry tubers in a shallow tray, just covered with slightly moist potting compost, sand or vermiculite and store in a frost-free place until planting out again.
