If I was asked to choose the six best - and most beautiful - moderate sized dahlias ideal for growing on a series of containers, it would be these. Whether in pots in our Perch Hill Dutch Yard or Arthur’s Flower Yard, these are the ones we’d recommend. And don’t forget to pick vases of flowers from them to bring inside.
All dahlia flowers are edible, scatter their petals on salads for flavour, texture and colour.This collection contains:
- 1 x 3L pot of Dahlia 'Josie'
- 1 x 3L pot of Dahlia 'Waltzing Mathilda'

Dahlia 'Josie' may need support. Lift and overwinter your dahlias frost free undercover.
