Buy Dahlia 'Ambition' dahlia: 15cm wide flowers

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Hardiness: half hardy

    This stunning cactus dahlia is a prolific bloomer, which will produce masses of magenta-purple flowers, each up to 15 cm across for a long period from mid summer. When in flower it grabs centre stage with its jaw-dropping display, which is equally effective amongst other bruised-toned, summer flowers or when potted up on a sunny patio.

  • Garden care: Provide a high-nitrogen liquid feed each week in June, then a high-potash fertiliser each week from July to September. Once the first frosts have blackened the foliage carefully lift and clean the tubers and allow them to dry naturally indoors. Place the dry tubers in a shallow tray, just covered with slightly moist potting compost, sand or vermiculite. Store in a frost-free place, checking frequently over the winter months.

What do you have to do with tutors after they have been stored all winter

Hi there Dahlia tubers can be planted outside after frost, or started off in pots under glass in late winter to early spring. Incorporate plenty of organic matter, such as well-rotted manure into the soil prior to planting. Plant them horizontally approximately 12cm deep, making sure the 'eyes' are uppermost. While in growth, provide a high-nitrogen liquid feed each week in June, then a high-potash fertiliser each week from July to September. Hope this helps
