Propagation in full swing

We are currently propagating Dahlia plants for all our customers. As things stand we have only 1 variety that has cause for concern out of the many hundreds of varieties we are growing, this variety is Ivors Rhonda. The substitute for this variety will be either Vino or William Gregory.

The green shoots of a new season

Well the first shoots are appearing in the stock greenhoses as i write this, we are currently putting the Dahlia tubers into their heated beds and boxes ready for the coming season. Initial signs are good with a large number of our tubers showing growing points about to jump into life. Finally myself and the staff would like to wish all our customers a Happy New Year.

December Jobs with the dahlias

Now all the tubers have dried it is time to put them to bed for a few months, those fibourous tubers with little size may need to be started in to growth sooner rather than later. For storage we reccomend a polystyrene box into which we place the tubers then a covering of compost or peat before putting in a frost free place until early March.
