These striking, fully double, dahlia-flowered blooms on 1.2m tall stems provide a dazzling spectacle of scarlet, yellow, orange and pink throughout the warmer months. Use in the garden to create a backdrop of long lasting coulour or indoors as a vibrant cut flower.
Sow direct where they are to grow when soil is warm, or in trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix. Firm down, keep moist through germination and transplant when seedlings are large enough to handle.
Choose a well-drained, sunny, wind-sheltered position. Add compost and Yates Blood & Bone before planting and fertilise regularly with Yates Thrive Soluble Flower & Fruit Plant Food. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.
Transplant carefully as seedlings resent root disturbance. Mulch around base of plants to retain soil moisture. Pinching out first buds will encourage branching. Remove spent flowers to prolong display.
Store in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
