Growing Calendar for Dahlia Alfred Grille - Tuber
Delivery: 5-7 Working Days
Dahlia Alfred Grille plants should be integral to your outdoor space revealing coral-pink and yellow flowers with dozens of petals on every bloom. Make a statement in your garden with these flowers starting from July and lasting to first frosts in autumn or winter.
Plant dahlia Alfred Grille in the centre section of your flower bed; nearby punchy flowers with bright colours and rare contrasting textures create a natural theatre in your garden. We recommend planting with tall grasses like Stipa and architectural perennials like Verbena bonariensis.
Consider Alfred Grille for your allotment too to add welcome colour and big impact. These are classic as cut flowers that you can share with fellow veg plotters. Tie the flowers of dahlia Alfred Grille together and sell them on as bouquets.
When you receive your bulb-like tuber, plant straight away in a pot filled with a specially-formulated bulb compost like Dalefoot Wool Compost for Bulbs. If you plan to plant in a bed, just add a spadeful or two per square metre of the Wool Compost into the top layer of the existing soil.
If you can’t plant the tuber straight away leave it somewhere cool, dark and airy like an unheated shed. Look to planting your bulb within five to seven days.
If you fancy bringing some outdoors in, cut the stems off some of your plants for vase displays in your home. Use a good sharp pair of secateurs and enjoy a little floristry without breaking the bank.
