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.

Variety Julie One
Type Tender Perennial Tuber
Common Name Dahlia
Border Position Back
Bulb Size I
Soil Type Acid, Chalky, Fertile, Neutral
Scent Unscented
Site Full Sun
Moisture Moist but Well-drained
Height 1.2m (3ft 11in)
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.

I purchased 2 dahlia tubers and Julie One was a poor performer. The flower was so small and didn't last very long at all. In comparison to the Tartan this one was a huge disappointment.

This one is taking longer to get going and a little feeble this year, but if it's anything like the Tangerine Dream of last year, it will be great in 2020.

I am very disappointed with this Dahlia, she is tall with many leaves but no flowers and the slugs and snails are having a field day. In future I will only buy Dahlias that are in flower.

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.
