Dahlias

Dahlias

Dahlias are enjoying a huge renaissance in popularity as gardeners realise their value in providing a riot of colour from mid-summer to the first frosts. Just as many perennials are beginning to flag in the heat of summer, dahlias are coming into their own, revelling in the warmth to produce wave after wave of their exuberant blooms. Give them a sunny position with a rich soil and they cannot fail to please.

We are constantly evolving our range of dahlias to benefit from the introduction of new, improved varieties, and believe that the selection we now offer allows many harmonious and exciting colour combinations to be made. In every part of the colour spectrum we have tried to include a variety of different dahlia types, to give contrasting shapes and heights within a planting scheme. We have also added the sizes of the flowers, as well as plant heights, since this is difficult to gauge from a photographic image, and can vary enormously from one variety to another. Please use the dimensions as a guide rather than an absolute - actual dimensions can show considerable variations, due to differing cultural conditions.


NOTE: We supply all our dahlias as good-sized tubers. The actual tuber size will, however, vary according to variety and from season to season.

AGM after a variety name denotes the accolade of the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.

 Pre-season ordering of dahlias for delivery in spring 2018 will commence on-line from 1st January 2018. Delivery from mid-February, weather allowing (we do not ship if overnight temperatures are zero degrees or below). Please bookmark this page and if you register for one of our twice yearly newsletters, you'll get a reminder in good time and a preview of the new additions to our range (we have many exciting new varieties for the 2018 season!). 

ALL VARIETIES ARE OFFERED SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY. PLEASE NOTE THAT AFTER TWO SEASONS  WHICH HAVE PRODUCED MUCH LOWER THAN EXPECTED HARVESTS FOR OUR GROWERS, STOCKS OF SOME VARIETIES ARE VERY LIMITED, SO PLEASE ORDER EARLY TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT.

Note also that, from July onwards, we do have a good selection of pot grown dahlias available at our nursery on regular Friday openings, shows we attend and on our special open days.This often includes varieties which we hold in our collection but which are not available as tubers. Visitors can also see a wide range of dahlias growing on the nursery and in our display garden.
