Description

Stripes of pink and purple strike through white petals with Dahlia ‘Bishop of Dover’.

A stark contrast to the dark brown, bronze coloured foliage beneath, these white open flowerheads will benefit bees and other pollinators in the garden.

As a Paeony Dahlia, ‘Bishop of Dover’ is part of a well known group of Dahlias named after UK bishoprics, such as ‘Bishop of Llandaff’ (which is also available).

Planting Guide

We recommend planting Dahlia tubers, such as Bishop of Dover, 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.

Gardening Tip

Cut new, fully opened flowerheads for use indoors in vases.
