Description
A favourite for cottage garden borders, Dahlia ‘Bishop of Llandaff’ boasts striking scarlet flowers which at over 1m high will really stand out at the back of beds or planted in large containers. A branching, tuberous dahlia, ‘Bishop of Llandaff’ is unusual for its dark aubergine, almost black stems and foliage which provide a stunning contrast to the bright red flowers. As with all dahlia plants, tubers need to be dug up and overwintered in a dry, frost-free place. Height: 1.2m (4'). Spread:60cm (24").


6 dahlia tubers (TKA0118)
3 dahlia tubers (TKA0117)
1 dahlia tuber (KA0116)

How to Grow
Pot up Dahlia plants and grow them on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise dahlia plants to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before planting out in beds, borders and containers. Choose a position in full sun on any rich fertile, moist, well drained soil.
More Info
Feed and water dahlias regularly throughout the growing season. While dahlia plants are still young, pinch out the growing tip of each stem to encourage bushier growth and masses of flowers. Deadhead faded dahlia flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced. Bedding dahlia are generally grown as annuals, however dahlia tubers may be lifted in autumn and stored over winter in trays of peat or sand, in a cool but frost free position if required. They can be potted up the following spring.
