We recommend planting Dahlia tubers, such as Bishop of Canterbury, between March and June into fertile, well drained soil 15cm deep and 60cm apart. Position in a sunny location for maximum flowering and impact. After planting, water in well and monitor during the Summer months. Aim for one good soak once a week to the base of the plant.
Some tall and large flowerhead Dahlia varieties may need staking for support during the flowering season. Use an all-purpose general plant feed for bigger and brighter blooms. Deadhead regularly to encourage more flowers through till first frosts.
Cut new, fully opened flowerheads for use indoors in vases.
