  • Dahlias have enjoyed a great resurgence in recent years as all round feature plants ~ by choosing your varieties and their associated flowering period, you can have cut flowers, boarders and terraces full of colour well in late summer and early autumn.

    Dahlia's can be grown in most soil types and situations and can also be grown in pots ideal for patio's and smaller gardens. There are also many dark foliage varieties which can add contrast to garden settings.

    When it comes to growing tips there's a simple rule, "If what you are doing now works don’t change just because someone says something different" however we hope that the following pages will give you some helpful advice.

    We welcome comments and tips from dahlia growers and any visitors to our website; please send your contribution by clicking HERE and we will share your experiences on the Growing Tips Page.

     Twyning's Top Tips

    1. Whatever you decide to do with your tubers over winter do make sure that you clean up all the foliage debris and compost since it can be a source of leaf disease next year.
    2. If you are leaving your Dahlias in the ground avoid using anything with fresh straw to mulch as sometimes it carries chemical residues that can be harmful to dahlias. Well-rotted straw based manure will not be a problem.
