Product Information

A striking flower with unusual star-shaped, starburst blooms, this mixture of spiky-flowered 'Honka' dahlias will make a colourful and eye-catching addition to your summer displays.

Also known as Cartwheel, Star or Orchid Dahlias because of the unusual, wheel-shaped flowers, they're a real delight for lovers of something a little more unusual. The flowerheads have a single ring of curved outer petals surrounding the central disc and make a cheerful addition to your garden.

In bloom from June through to September, they are easy to grow and packed full of energy to burst into growth in Spring and produce a mass of bright colours which will pepper your garden like gemstones as Summer turns to Autumn. Dahlias are perfect for planting in your bed, borders, patio pots and containers. They also make fabulous cut flowers so pick a bunch of these pastel beauties to bring into your home for amazing colour.

Dahlias will need some winter protection if you want them to return next year, we recommend that you dig them up before the first frost arrives and keep them stored over the winter.

Supplied as a pack of 3 tubers, ready to plant out.

Top Tips

If you find that earwigs are a problem, the organic way to control them is to position pots filled with straw upside down on canes spaced around your dahlias.

Care Information

  • Dahlias are tender tubers and do best when potted up initially in March or early April, into large pots (2 - 3L) filled with multi-purpose compost.
  • Placed in a light, frost-free place and kept moist, they'll quickly form bushy plants by the time the frosts have ended, ready to be planted out into the garden.
  • In the garden, dig a hole at least 30cm wide x 30cm deep for each one, spacing each tuber 75cm apart.
  • If you donít have anywhere to start them in pots, you can put the tubers straight into the ground when the frosts are nearly over.
  • Once a fortnight, feed them with a liquid feed such as our Blooming Fast Superior plant feed.
  • During dry periods, water at least once a week.
  • Dahlias should be deadheaded regularly to encourage more blooms and you will need to stake the plants to prevent the flowers from breaking the stems.
