For years dahlias have been dismissed for being garish, gaudy additions to gardens and arrangements, but when you find the right variety it's hard to think of a better garden plant or more striking cut flower. This fabulous book is a stylish floral gardening guides which celebrates the diversity and return to fashion of the dahlia.
This book by Naomi Slade explores the history of the dahlia from its Aztec origins and its highs and lows as a cultivated plant, to its current status as one of the most adored flowers on the planet. This beautiful book reveals over 60 beautiful varieties and talks you through their charms and assets together with practical cultivation tips for any garden. Including classics like Cafe au Lait and Karma Choc, together with modern, dark-leaved stunners like the Mystic series, the varieties and forms range from perky pompons and lush dinner plates to those that resemble sea-anemones or spectacular fireworks!
With contemporary commentary on each bloom, easy-to-follow advice and glorious photography, this book will appeal to everybody who appreciates the glamour and versatility of the dahlia.
We also have The Plant Lovers Guide to Snowdrops by Naomi Slade which you can see here and also Naomi's new book on Hydrangeas just published in May of this year.
