Dahlia 'Lilac Bull'
Dahlia 'Lilac Bull' Lilac Bull Dahlia Tuber
Dahlia Lilac Bull is a beautiful magenta purple pom-pom dahlia flower with a contrasting yellow centre. It's bold and boastful colour will be a joy to see when in bloom over a long period from mid-summer to autumn. Plant these alone in a large group or team them with bright yellow dahlias like Kelvin Floodlight.

 How to plant Dahlias

  • Store your dahlia tubers in a cool, dry place until the risk of frost has past, usually by April/May when you can plant your tubers outside in a sunny position with well-drained soil.
  • Alternatively, you can start your dahlia tubers off in March/April in pots and grow them on indoors in a frost-free location like a greenhouse before transferring them outside after the last frosts.
  • If planting in the garden, cover your tubers with 3cm (1-2") of soil. Allow approx. 30cm spacing between each tuber. (The spacing may vary depending on the final size of the variety.)
  • If planting in pots, plant 1 x dahlia tuber in a 2 to 3 litre pot or 12" in diameter and fill with multi-purpose compost. Use a slow-release fertiliser to promote strong growth. 
  • If planting in the garden, mulch over to protect them from the risk of any frost, douse the hole with a watering can full of water and cane as you plant.
  • See 'Care Instructions' for more information.

Care Instructions

How to care for Dahlias

Care:

  • Support Dahlias with canes on planting and tie in as growth develops.
  • When your Dahlias reach about 40cm in height, pinch out the growing tips with your thumb and forefinger or use a sharp knife. This will encourage branching.
  • Water once a week with a good amount not just a little sprinkle.
  • Deadhead flowers as they fade.

Overwintering:

  • Once the first frosts have blackened the foliage, cut the plants back to the ground.
  • In well-drained soils, leave the tubers in the ground and cover with a generous layer of bark chips or compost to protect them from frost.
  • In colder climates or heavier soils, lift and store your tubers over winter.  
  • Replant the following spring. 

Lifting and Storing over winter:

  • Cut back foliage and carefully lift the tubers out of the soil.
  • Allow the tubers to dry off naturally and then clean away any soil. 
  • Trim the stems back to 15-20cm and cut off any fine roots.
  • Make sure the tubers are completely dry before storing them into open trays or boxes. Pack with peat-free compost or dry sand. Leave the crowns exposed.
