This crisp white ball dahlia is a honeycomb of tightly rolled petals. The flowers are approximately 7cm in diameter.  Beautiful in arrangements and works well with all colours. Petras Wedding is also a great choice for the garden as well as the cutting garden as they are nice sturdy plants.

Dahlias | Preparation

Prepare your garden beds well. Dahlias prefer well-drained, acidic loam but will grow relatively well in any soil as long as it isn’t too wet. Dig down approximately 20-30cm and amend the soil by adding compost to increase the porosity and nutrient density as dahlias are big feeders.

Lay the tuber sprout-side up 7-8cm deep in a trench and cover it over with the prepared soil. Dahlias need to be kept weed-free. Mulch around the plants to prevent weeds and conserve moisture. Pinch back the terminal bud or the primary growing tip when the plant is about 40cm tall to enforce good branching and structure and increase budding. Provide plenty of water to your plants. Water plants deeply once or twice per week. Big dahlias will need a support structure such as mesh which is what we use or corral them in with twine to keep the heavy blooms from bending to the ground.

Fertilise monthly with water-soluble fertiliser  - we use Seasol a few times during the growing season.
