Description

This is a box of Burgundy berry Dahlia tubers, two packets of flower seeds and a handwritten card ( please message me what you would like me to write or I can leave it blank) of beautiful artwork created by a local lady who rescues Ferrets and many other animals.

Plant in a position away from afternoon sun and strong winds if possible. So where they will receive morning and midday sun. plant so top of tubers sits just below soil surface.

Dahlias can be planted anytime from now until March and still have time to flower. They travel very well so its a great gift for a gardener.

Ground preparation includes making sure soil is free draining ( clay based soil can be a problem if a lot of rain happens), dig a nice amount of rotted cow manure and / or compost that is well broken down. You can build a garden bed from scratch with newspaper over well mown grass, then build up soil over top ( test all new delivered soil as it can be too high alkaline or acid as I have found, then you can remedy it with manure or acid reducing additives. If you do all this in the months prior to planting your Dahlias will thank you with bountiful blooms.

Then Dahlias planted will vigorously grow until flowering can begin from mid October onwards until late April or Early May when the cold and frost of Winter send them back to sleep.

A tip is dry Dahlia stems, make amazing kindling due to the hollow stems.

Resist watering your Dahlia tubers, my friend Lanie tells me she never waters hers, even during 2019’s drought they were unwatered. If they dry out badly they may be in too sunny a location, I do water potted Dahlias but infrequently. Dahlias will still flower in part shade , even under shade cloth.

 

Taller varieties may need staking.

 

This lovely box full of goodies can be sent Australia wide (excluding NT, Western Australia and Tasmania due to Quarantine restrictions)

Please contact me if you have any questions.
