Growing Calendar for Dahlia Honka -Tuber
Slender, distinctively shaped petals for a totally different effect in the border or as a cut flower. Showy single flowers take dahlias to a whole new level. They were a sensation at the shows and they will be in your garden.
Plant the tubers at least 20cm/8in deep and 75cm/30in apart when there is no risk of frost and the soil has warmed up. When stems are around 30cms/1ft tall start staking them.
Dahlias will grow in almost any location, and on most soils but they relish good, loamy, well-drained soil and lots of sunshine.
After care Deadhead spent flowers regularly to keep dahlias in bloom until the frosts. Lift after the frost has touched the plants and store the tubers in a cool, dark and frost free place over winter. Flowers July-November. Height 1m/39in.
Summer flowering bulbs, corms and tubers are many and varied. They fit in with most mixed planting schemes.
