In keeping with our concern for the plight of the bees, this dahlia forms part of our organic bulb range. It has been sustainably grown without the use of pesticides (including neonicotinoides), and it comes in a brown paper bag with an informative colour label.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to October
  • Hardiness: half hardy

    The creamy white petals of this gorgeous cactus dahlia radiate out from a greenish yellow centre. Dahlias are perfect for adding several months of colour to the mixed or herbaceous border as they will usually flower from midsummer to mid-autumn. Make sure you plant more than you need, as they are excellent when cut too.

  • Garden care: Before planting enrich the soil with organic matter and apply an organic fertiliser during the growing season. Once the first frosts have blackened the foliage, carefully lift and clean the tubers and allow them to dry naturally indoors. Place the dry tubers in a shallow tray, just covered with slightly moist potting compost, sand or vermiculite. Store in a frost-free place, checking frequently over the winter months.
  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
