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.

There is the facility to choose dahlias for their suitability for cutting & for containers under the 'filter by attributes' selector on the top left of the page. These selections are by no means exhaustive - we all have our own ideas about these things - but they do represent 'failsafe' choices, so that dahlias for cutting will all have a decent length of stem and container selections will fill a pot without the plants appearing 'leggy' or thin. You can also access our (small) range of organic dahlia tubers under the same function.

NOTE: We supply all our dahlias as top-sized tubers. The actual tuber size will, however, vary according to variety and from season to season. With a few varieties which are produced specially for us, we offer a choice of tuber size.  In 2023 there will be the option to buy tubers singly for some varieties, although our packs  of 3 tubers continue to offer the most outstanding value for money.

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

Pre-season ordering of dahlia tubers will be possible on-line from 1st January 2023 for delivery in spring 2023. Delivery is usually from mid-February, weather allowing (we do not ship if overnight temperatures are zero degrees or below). Earlier delivery can sometimes be arranged by request, for orders placed in the first week of January.

We regret that we are currently unable to ship orders outside the United Kingdom.

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.

OUR 2023 DAHLIA COLLECTION IS NOW AVAILABLE TO ORDER. SOME OF THE NEW VARIETIES WE ARE OFFERING CAN ALSO BE SEEN ON OUR INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT (https://www.instagram.com/rosecottageplants/) .
