Dahlia tubers

This question was asked by
Richard P

Hi, I was hoping to order some spring planting dahlias (for summer flowers) to give as a Christmas present, but everywhere seems to want to send them out in the Spring. Is it possible to get a delivery before Christmas? Thanks.

Hi Richard

Unfortunately not, Dahlias are not lifted just yet and won’t be ready until the spring. You can pre-order them for february delivery.

You could always send a Gift Certificate and greeting card if you wanted to send it as a present for someone and they can choose some dahlias for next year.

Hi
I am looking at buying some dahlia bulbs. Are you still shipping these out? or if I order now will I not receive them until next year. They are for a present and so wanted to clarify the delivery before making the purchase

Thanks, Laura

Hi Laura

Delivery of Dahlia tubers is in february next year. We only have Autumn planted bulbs for this time of year, like Tulips, Alliums etc. You can find all the stock we have left in our end of season sale, however, we are selling out fast.

Alternatively, you could order gift voucher and greeting card to be sent as a present.

This question was asked by
Lisette De Roche

Hello,
If I ordered lily bulbs from you now – is it too late to ‘autumn’ plant them or should I wait to order in the spring and plant then?
Many thanks,
Lisette

HI there
All lily bulbs are dispatched in February ready for planting except for Lilium Candidum ‘The Madonna Lily’ which can be planted in the Autumn.

Overwintering Begonias

This question was asked by
Dave –

What do I do with my begonias now flowering is over?
Dave

Hi Dave

Once the Begonia flowering season has finished, the stems and foliage will turn yellow and die back naturally.
Reduce watering to prevent rotting.
Once all the stems have fallen off naturally, dig out the tubers, clean and dry them before storing them away in peat or sand in a dry, frost-free area like a garage or shed.
Replant the following February.

Overwintering Cannas

This question was asked by
Anne B – 

I have cut the foliage off my potted cannas and they are now in my insulated green house. Do they need watering throughout the winter or should they be kept dry

Hi Anne

Cannas need lifting and drying off over winter. Cut back foliage and carefully lift the rhizomes out of the soil.
Allow the rhizomes to dry off naturally and then clean away any soil.
Make sure the tubers are completely dry before storing them into open trays or boxes.
Store in a dark place that is frost free.
Replant them in the spring and water regularly.
