Dahlia Pooh (1 tuber)

Dahlia Pooh (1 tuber) £2.4500
A distinctive vibrant orange dahlia with honey yellow centres, Pooh dahlias grow to around 90cm in height and flower all summer long. Ideal for planting in beds and borders. Dahlias like any well cultivated, garden soil with a good supply of organic material. Sunny sites away from strong winds. Use as a border or bedding plant dahlias make good cut flowers. Short varieties can also be grown in containers on the patio or balcony. Dahlias vary in height, so plant at the front or back of borders or in pots, according to height. Keep the plants well watered during growth. Either lift tubers after flowering and store frost free in dry compost or particularly in warmer areas, cover with a mulch over winter. For early flowering, tubers may be started off in boxes in April; use a light soil mixed with compost. Keep slightly moist, cool and free from frost. When he danger of frosts has passed, plant out the sprouted tubers. If used as a cut flower, cut the stems on when the flower has fully developed.
