    Add sumptuous colour to your borders with these lavish-looking dahlias. They will start to flower in midsummer and if cut regularly (they make long-lived additions to the vase) they will continue to bloom well into autumn.

    In each collection you will receive one tuber of each of the following cultivars.

    Dahlia 'Fashion Monger': Simple, yet showy, this colarette dahlia was first introduced in 1955 - and it is still sought after today. Each flower is a unique mix of pinkish red and creamy white, and its open centre means that bees (and other pollinators) can easily access the nectar-rich disc florets. It looks great when woven through a naturalistic planting scheme - and when potted up, it will also help liven up the patio. Grows to 1m.

    Dahlia 'Seniors Darkness': Initially near-black, the in-rolled petals open out and fade to rich magenta as they age. Forming 20cm wide flowerheads that top long, darkly coloured stems, this dahlia is often grown for its cut flowers. It also looks sensational in the border. Grows to 1m.

    Dahlia 'Temple of Beauty':Usually flowering non-stop from early in the season, this glorious dahlia will provide an abundance of rich rose and creamy yellow flowers, which can be as large as 15cm across. This blend of colours makes them extremely easy to place in the border, and their vibrant green foliage offers a fresh-looking backdrop. Grows to 1.2m.

  • Garden care: Dahlia tubers can be planted outside after frost, or started off in pots under glass in late winter to early spring. Plant them horizontally approximately 12cm deep, making sure the ‘eyes’ are uppermost. Allow enough room between each tuber so the plants can grow and spread to their full size without being over-crowded. While in growth, provide a high-nitrogen liquid feed each week in June, then a high-potash fertiliser each week from July to September. Stake with canes or brushwood if it becomes necessary. In mild areas, leave them in situ over winter, but protect the crown with a generous layer of dry mulch. In colder areas, carefully lift and clean the tubers once the first frosts have blackened the foliage and allow them to dry naturally indoors. Then place the dry tubers in a shallow tray, just covered with slightly moist potting compost, sand or vermiculite and store in a frost-free place until planting out again.

Plant spring bulbs

Spring bulbs, such as daffodils and hyacinths, can be planted whenever the soil conditions allow. As a rough guide, cover them with about twice as much soil as the bulb is deep: so that a 5cm (2in) deep bulb would need a 15cm (6in) deep hole so that it
