Growing Calendar for Dahlia Cafe au Lait- Tuber
Delivery: Early March to Late May
Dahlia ‘Cafe Au Lait’ is a radiant variety with large flowers, up to 25cm across, in colours of gorgeous peachy cream shades. They create spectacular displays in the border and work especially well as a cut flower. ‘Cafe Au Lait’ is a much loved variety of Dahlia and is best planted alongside other plants with subtle coloured flowers. Its flowering period is long, from June through to the first frost, but remember to keep deadheading to encourage more blooms to flower.
Dahlias will grow almost in any location, in any soil but they relish good, loamy, well-drained soil and lots of sunshine. Plant the tubers when there is no risk of frost and the soil has warmed up. When they are one foot tall start staking them. Lift after the frost has touched the plants and store the tubers in a cool, dark and frost free place over winter.
Summer flowering bulbs, corms and tubers are many and varied. They fit in with most mixed planting schemes.
