I like the rich colours planted together and then I like the pales, none more so than these two white and green flowered dahlias - perfect for the white or pastel garden.

This collection contains 1, 2 or 3 tubers each of:

Our dahlias:

  • are first class, healthy tubers – the largest and best you can buy.
  • come with full planting, spacing and cultivating instructions for beginner gardeners
  • tubers should be potted up when they arrive and be kept in a light, frost-free place until the frosts are over and then be planted into the garden.

This can be gift wrapped in our exclusive hessian sack, with ribbon and a Sarah Raven gift card. You will be able to add this to your basket once you begin the checkout process. To add a gift message to your order, simply fill out the details at the delivery stage of the checkout.

Please note: only items which are showing ‘in stock’ can be gift wrapped.

Common Name Dahlia
Border Position Back, Middle
Bulb Size I
Soil Type Acid, Chalky, Fertile, Neutral
Scent Unscented
Site Full Sun
Moisture Moist but Well-drained
Height 1.1m (3ft 7in)
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
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.

Very good service. Really like the white dahlias, dark red ones a mistake, much too dark for me and they die off very quickly, not like the white ones which last for ages in water. Loved the cosmos, antirrhinums just coming up to their best, , delphiniums are really beautiful. No don't think so

Some tubers did not grow. Plants haven’t flowered yet and I think I will purchase plants rather than tubers in future

one of my dahlia tubers was mouldy and another partially eaten. I did get a replacement for the mouldy one thank you.Unfortunatly the weather here in Lincolnshire has either been very hot or very wet so flower heads have not been true

Perfect! They arrived when predicted, in excellent packaging and condition. They have grown really well and, despite this being their first year, ALL of them are flowering profusely. I am excited about next year, but WILL lift them in the Autumn.
