Dahlia ‘New Baby’ is a gardener’s favourite.
Renowned for it’s vivid orange display in Summer, plant this dahlia with violet or purple shades for a striking contrast in the garden.
As a taller pompon variety, use it’s height to stand out and show off it’s warm hues.
We recommend planting dahlia tubers, such as New Baby, 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.
