More Details

Dahlia 'Jescot Julie' has been a long-standing favourite with a beautiful bi-colour, but now it has perhaps been outshone now by 'Julie One' which has a softer orange-apricot petal and rich crimson reverse. I absolutely love this.

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 3rd November 2018 by Caroline

This was the largest of all my dahlias this year. It grew 1.6m with loads and loads of 8cm diameter flowers that I picked all summer. I have just dug it up to overwinter and the tuber is enormous.
The flowers are more orangey with reddy backs than the photo online. I agree with the previous review that it would be very helpful if the diameter of the flowers was included in the details of the product online and in the catalogue.

Pretty but....

Reviewed 31st July 2018 by Cynthia Edwards

...the flowers are quite small. My plant is very big so the flowers (only 2 so far) look a little lost. it would be better if in the description on the web site there could be an indication of the average diameter of the flowers.
