Variety Jowey Winnie
Type Tender Perennial Tuber
Common Name Dahlia
Border Position Container, Middle
Bulb Size I
Soil Type Acid, Chalky, Fertile, Neutral
Scent Unscented
Site Full Sun
Moisture Moist but Well-drained
Height 1m (3ft 3in)
Spacing Plant just under the soil surface, 75cm (30in) apart.
Sowing, Seeds, Planting Pot them up undercover March or early April in a generous pot (at least 2 litre) filled with multi-purpose potting compost. Place them in a light, frost-free place and keep the compost moist. Pinch out their growing tips when they have reached about 8" tall. They will have formed bushy plants by the time the frosts have ended and will be in flower by the beginning of July. If you don’t have anywhere to grow the potted tubers, you can put them straight into the ground when the frosts are nearly over, mulching them or protecting with a cloche or protective horticultural fleece if the foliage appears before the frosts are over, but this will delay flowering.
Care Tips Support with a stout stick, tie in every couple of weeks. In the south you can mulch deeply and overwinter them in the ground, alternatively, lift and overwinter your dahlias frost free undercover.
Flowering July - November
Harvesting Flower production 5 months
Cooking Notes All dahlia flowers are edible. I use the petals scattered over salad and to decorate a range of puddings.

Reviewed 1st August 2019 by Michelle

I have tended these tubers lovingly,following Sarah Raven’s instructions,they have been really hard work and very expensive for the end result! I,so far,at the beginning of August have no buds on them and hence had no flowers at all and am not convinced I am going to get any. I’m so disappointed and not sure I would buy them again. If it had been something else I’d purchased I would have asked for a refund,but a bit difficult when you have to wait for something to grow from a tuber or seed! Very expensive purchase and postage for no flowers!

This is making a nice healthy plant but has yet to flower. I cannot fully rate it until I know whether it flowers true to it’s advertised colour (see comment on gladiolus bimbo)

This has been in flower for at least 2 weeks already, its a beautiful form and has a striking colour when its first emerging, this does quickly turn more yellow but its still a wonderful flower.
