More Details

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

Genus Dahlia
Group/Species Miscellaneous Group
Variety Julie One
Type Tender Perennial Tuber
Common Name Dahlia
Border Position Back
Bulb Size 1
Soil Type Acid, Chalky, Fertile, Neutral
Scent Unscented
Site Full Sun
Moisture Moist but Well-drained
Height 1.2-1.5m (47-59in)
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.

...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.
