Border Position Back, Middle

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
Vase Life Only pick dahlias in full flower. Recut the hollow stem ends under water to avoid airlocks.
Cooking Notes All dahlia flowers are edible. I use the petals scattered over salad and to decorate a range of puddings.

Reviewed 5th July 2018 by Tracey Smith

This is the third dahlia tuber purchased from Sarah Raven which has not taken. I bought 2 tubers a couple of years ago, both of which failed and this is the same. Not one single leaf. Other dahlia tubers purchased elsewhere are flowering well so it is not the way I grow them. Very disappointed as this looked a beautiful plant and the dahlia tubers from Sarah Raven are not cheap. I won't be buying any more dahlias from this company, which is a shame because their young plants are usually excellent.
