I received Jescott Julie as part of a collection. I love it so I've grown it for the past three years. I garden in the High Pennines with a short growing season, I plant this dahlia in a raised bed as a tuber right at the end of May and by September I have lots of lovely flowers to cut for the house. I love this with Karma Choc another great doer in my garden. As a novice (and rather lazy) gardener I would recommend dahlias they are easy and trouble free to grow (watch out for greedy slugs in the early days) though you do need a stake or two for those September gales so frequent in the high hills. Spectactular results with hardly any effort!

Joyful!

This dahlia is simpler in it's form than some of the others, but for me, this adds to it's charm. It has a gorgeous tangerine colour to the face of the petals, but the underside is streaked heavily with a deep pink - the sort of colouring that makes you marvel at how clever nature is! Standing alone or in a jug mixed with deep purples and reds - it is an absolute delight.
