Behold, the ultimate collection of the famed 'Dinnerplate' Dahlias. The extraordinarily large flowers can be seen from the top of even the longest of gardens and boast intricate, geometric petal formations coloured in a variety of vibrant shades.
Ensure you plant at the depth specified above. Too deep and the bulb may rot and shoot emerge late. Too shallow and it will emerge unevenly and produce spindly growth.
Once the shoot emerges, watering thoroughly, regularly will help with growth.
Fertiliser isn't necessary, but will help with blooms. Simply, apply slow release fertiliser on planting in spring, or alternatively apply liquid fertiliser when the growing season starts in early summer.
