In keeping with our concern for the plight of the bees, this dahlia forms part of our organic bulb range. It has been sustainably grown without the use of pesticides (including neonicotinoides), and it comes in a brown paper bag with an informative colour label.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to October
  • Hardiness: half hardy (will need winter protection)

    The deep raspberry red petals of this elegant little dahlia also have hints of purple and white - and this gives them real depth. The simple silhouette of the flowerheads makes them ideal for more naturalised planting schemes, while their compact habit makes them ideal for the patio. The flowers will also last well if cut for the vase.

  • Garden care: Before planting enrich the soil with organic matter and apply an organic fertiliser during the growing season. Once the first frosts have blackened the foliage, carefully lift and clean the tubers and allow them to dry naturally indoors. Place the dry tubers in a shallow tray, just covered with slightly moist potting compost, sand or vermiculite. Store in a frost-free place, checking frequently over the winter months.
  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
