These seeds were collected from double varieties of dahlia in a lovely range of colours, from pale yellow through pinks and oranges to dark reds, all serving to brighten up the late summer and early autumn garden and also wonderful for flower arrangements.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow February to April, no more than 0.25in/6mm deep (light aids germination, which should take 7-21 days) in good quality seed compost, covering with fine vermiculite or seived compost. Keep in a propagator at 20-25C/68-77F, transplanting seedlings into 9cm pots and growing on in cooler conditions, hardening off and planting out after all danger of frost is past. Usually grown as half-hardy annuals, but will often overwinter successfully in a sheltered garden. Alternatively, tubers can be lifted and stored in a dark, cool (frost-free) place until the following spring.
