How to plant Dahlias

Planting in the Garden

  • If panting in the garden, plant in late spring once the risk of frost has passed.
  • Find a good location with plenty of sun and drainage.
  • 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.)
  • Douse the hole with a watering can full of water and cane as you plant.
  • Mulch over to protect them from the risk of any frost.
  • Planting in Pots/Containers
  • If planting in pots, start them off indoors until the risk of frost has passed.
  • Keep them indoors in a frost-free location like a greenhouse before transferring them outside after the last frosts.
  • Plant 1 x tuber in a 2-3litre pot or 12" in diameter.
  • Cover your tubers with 3cm (1-2") of soil.
  • Use a good-quality, multipurpose compost.

Aftercare/Overwintering

  • Once your dahlias have finished flowering and 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 mulch over to protect against frosts.
  • In colder climates or heavier soils, lift and store your tubers over winter.
  • If 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 and cut off any fine roots. Make sure the tubers are completely dry before storing them into open trays or boxes. Pack with dry sand. Leave the crowns exposed.
  • Replant the following spring.
  • Must be kept frost free.
  • Once the risk of frosts have passed and you start to see signs of growth again, the mulch can be removed.
  • Water regularly during active growth periods.
  • See 'Care Instructions' for more information.

Care Instructions

Gladioli

  • If in pots, stop watering at the end of Summer and bring then indoors for winter to protect against frost.In a greenhouse, shed or garage will be fine. 
  • Place back outside once the danger of winter frosts has passed. 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lilies

  • Lilies can tolerate very cold conditions but they do not like to get wet.
  • If planting in borders in the garden, the soil must be well drained and, preferably, humus rich.
  • If planting in pots, make sure lilies are kept moist but do not get waterlogged.
  • Lilies prefer to be planted in a location with at least half a day’s full sunshine, if it’s a bit too shady they will lean their stems towards the sun.
  • Lily bulbs do not like to be dried out so they must be kept in soil at all times.
  • Try to plant your lilies where they will dry out after rain to prevent Botrytis, a fungus that spots the leaves. If you do see brown spots on your leaves, spray with a fungicide recommended for roses.
    If planting in pots, it may be an idea to tilt the pots on their side in the winter to prevent waterlog.
  • When the Lily has finished flowering, cut any seed heads back and allow the foliage to die back naturally. Do not be tempted to cut the stem back until stems becomes hollow and brown.
  • Lilies like a cold dormant phase throughout winter so they do not need lifting. Do ensure they have adequate drainage so they don't get waterlogged as this will cause the bulbs to rot. 
  • After a few years of flowering, you may find your Oriental Trumpet Lily produces less blooms, it may be time to lift your bulbs and divide them by breaking off the bulblets. All the bulbs will then need replanting.
  • To prevent Lily Beetles from damaging your lilies, we recommend using the Lily Beetle Prevention Spray or you can make up your own with the Concentrate. This Spray (Grazers G4) will also stimulate growth of your lilies.
  • You can feed your lilies with a Tomato Feed to stimulate and strengthen your lilies when you start to see signs of growth. Make up your tomato feed with half the recommended dilution (written on the instructions on the bottle) and feed once every 3 weeks.

Dahlias

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.
