Anyone growing dahlias for exhibition will want perfect blooms, and good staking is crucial in helping to achieve this. Rather than using just one stake to tie the plant to, position three canes to make a triangular ‘frame’ around the plant. Run a ring of twine around the three stakes to contain and support the plant’s growth within the triangle.
This is my second year of growing dahlias, had a good showing last year so decided to try propagating and taking cuttings from my nicest dahlias. This website is the best one I have seen for giving simple concise information. Well doneAnemone-flowering dahlias, such as ‘Boogie Woogie’, are unlike other dahlias in that the centres to the flowers comprise long tube-like petals, while the outer parts have layers of flattened petals . Interestingly, you don’t often see dahlias growing in flower borders mixed with other plants. This is because dahlias dislike competition from neighbouring plants – they don’t like sharing soil nutrition, and they like a bit of space around them. So, traditionally, they are grown in beds on their own. Dahlias produce mass of delicate feeder roots just under the soil so, in mid-summer, it is a good idea to mulch around the base of plants with a layer of well-rotted compost.
I first fell in love with dahlias when I was a gardening student at the Royal Horticultural Garden at Wisley, in Surrey. I spent three months working on the dahlia trials ground, and was lucky that my period there started just as the plants were coming in to flower.The dahlia has come a long way since the first plants arrived in Europe from Mexico, back in the 1700s. Initially, the tubers were regarded as a new type of vegetable, but it was quickly noticed that the small flowers were both attractive and easily hybridised. The challenge was then taken up by generations of gardeners and commercial growers, to make ever better flowering plants in a range of shapes, sizes and virtually every colour except the elusive true blue. Dinner plate dahlias, including ‘Arabian Night’, ‘Blue Boy’ and ‘Caballero’, are among the larger flowered types. They typically reach 120cm tall, and their flowers are some of the best for cutting. If you have a heated greenhouse, conservatory or space on a windowsill indoors, you can start the tubers into growth, ideally in late March or early April. Place the tubers in a pot or tray, so they are only half covered with compost. This helps to prevent them from rotting. New shoots should appear in 14-21 days, and the plant is then ready for potting on into a 1-litre pot, and growing on under glass until the risk of frost has passed.You can use them as ‘accent’ plants among, for example, summer bedding plants, but you must leave space of around 60cm free for them to grow. Or you could grow them with other tender border plants, such as gingers and cannas, for a dramatic tropical effect.
What is the difference between Coralie and Castle Drive Dahlia?
Beautiful Coralie dahlias are often confused with Castle Drive Dahlias due to their similar sizes, colors and petal shapes. However, a Coralie dahlia is very different from Castle Drive! Some of the unique features of Coralie Dahlias have a lighter blend of pink color with smaller serrated leaves and darker stems.
Pompon dahlias, such as ‘Franz Kafka’, ‘Golden Sceptre’ and ‘Tam Tam’, are easy to grow, reaching around 90cm tall, and can carry up to 100 drumstick-like flowers per plant.Dwarf bedding dahlias are perfect for those gardeners who do not have the room for full-sized dahlias. Varieties such as ‘Bluesette’, ’Red Pigmy’ and ‘Yellow Happiness’, reach just 50-60cm tall.
When in full growth, a dahlia plant needs a good soaking with water on alternate days. Apply water in the cooler part of the day, and never overhead as this can damage the flowers, and stop buds from opening. Apply an all-purpose liquid fertiliser, such as Miracle-Gro, every week or so from mid-summer, then switch to a high-potash tomato fertiliser, such as Gro-Sure Tomato Food, from late August.Here, you can purchase your dahlias as dormant tubers, any time from January to May. You will receive plump and healthy tubers through the post, in good time for starting them into growth.
Collarette dahlias, including ‘Fashion Monger’ and ‘Night Butterfly’, are also easy, and tend to be sturdier; their simple flowers have a charm all of their own.
Dahlias will grow best if they are in full sun for at least half the day. However, they are fleshy plants so they are vulnerable to wind damage. Therefore it is essential to give them good support, and ideal to give them a sheltered position.
Finally, at least a couple of times a week it is important to do some deadheading. This will make the plants look much better and will prolong the flowering period. Cut the faded heads off, removing the whole stalk down to its joint with a larger stem.There are different categories of dahlia flower, and for the average gardener these have been filtered into basic groups of Decorative, Dinner Plate, Pompon, Collarette, Cactus, Anemone-Flowering and Dwarf Bedding. Dahlia purists will have a greater list of categories, with sub-divisions, but they are really only relevant when it comes to growing dahlias for exhibition. Cactus dahlias, including the top-selling ‘Bergers Record’ and ‘Dutch Explosion’, have fully double blooms with quite narrow petals, giving the flower a very spiky appearance. If you have an allotment, or an area of the garden dedicated to plants for cutting and bringing indoors for the vase, then dahlias are a perfect choice. To grow a single, strong flower on a long, straight stem that is perfect for a vase, just pinch out the smaller flower buds either side of a central bud. This remaining bud is then left to grow and mature into a stunning bloom.
Although garden centres sell green dahlias growing in pots in late spring for planting outdoors immediately, this is the most expensive way to grow them, and you usually have very little choice in terms of colour and flower shape. It is better to choose your dahlias from a specialist tuber supplier, such as Farmer Gracy.
If you don’t have a place under cover to start the tubers into growth, you can still plant the unsprouted tubers outside, where the plants are to flower. But you will need to plant them about 10cm deep, and to do it about six weeks before the last frosts are expected. This will require a degree of guesswork! Also, remember that dahlias need good support from a stout stake (not just a bamboo cane), so it in important to set the stake into the ground before planting so that you don’t damage the tuber.In the Japanese language of flowers, the dahlia means ‘good taste’ – if you grow dahlias you are demonstrating that you are stylish and sophisticated when it comes to gardening! So, have we excited you about the prospect of a garden full of dahlias in 2017? If we have, there are plenty to choose from on the Farmer Gracy website.
What is the most prized dahlia?
Café Au Lait dahlia The Café Au Lait Dahlia is perhaps the most popular dahlia flower variety. This voluminous dinner-plate sized beauty is a favorite of both flower gardeners and of florists. Café Au Lait is a creamy rose color with a hint of peachy-beige towards the center.
Dahlias produce more flowers on bushier plants if they are ‘stopped’ once they have reached about 40cm tall. Simply pinch out the main growing tip above the top pair of leaves.
As for the soil, dahlias are not particularly fussy about whether it is peaty or chalky – but it should be free-draining (not heavy clay that gets waterlogged in winter), and reasonably fertile (not pure sand, but a good, dark colour). After planting, apply a handful of balanced fertiliser, such as Growmore.Det här är den version av vår webbplats som är riktad till personer som talar Svenska i Sverige.

Planting dahlia tubers is as simple as it is rewarding. These easy-to-grow plants offer a profusion of colorful blooms and late-summer garden interest.
Generally, dahlia tubers do not need to soak before planting. However, if they appear dried out and shriveled, you may want to soak them in a bucket of tepid water for one hour before planting.
The planting method is the same; dig a hole in the soil about four to five inches deep. Place the dahlia tubers in the holes with eyes up, and cover with a few inches of soil.
When you plant dahlia bulbs, the ground temperature should be at least 60 degrees F. Dahlia tubers don’t like cold soil, so planting them too early means they may struggle to grow.Let’s start with timing, as you may be wondering when to plant dahlia bulbs. The best time to plant dahlia tubers is in the spring, after the danger of the last frost has passed.Be sure to choose a site with optimal sun exposure. Dahlia flowers grow best when they receive at least six to eight hours of sun per day. Morning exposure is best, so pick a site with full sun exposure for the brightest blooms on your plants.
Easy-to-grow dahlia flowers bloom year after year, filling your landscape with stunning color and texture. These beautiful flowers grow in a rainbow of hues and wide variety of shapes that transform your garden from mid-summer through autumn.
You’ll see sprouts within a few weeks. The plants should be ready to go into the ground after the danger of the last frost has passed, giving you a great start on your summer blooms. Choosing the right site for dahlia tubers will help flowers bloom and thrive. Dahlias grow in USDA hardiness zones 7 to 10. As plants can grow to be several feet tall, select a planting spot that offers protection from the wind. In many regions, the perfect time to plant dahlia bulbs falls between mid-April and early June. You can check your region’s specific last frost date to be sure. As a general rule, stop planting dahlia tubers after mid-June. Now that the soil is prepared, it’s time to dig holes for your dahlia. How deep should you plant dahlias? Dig holes in the soil about four to five inches deep. Don’t water the tubers when you plant them, unless it’s very hot and dry. Wait until you can see sprouts above the soil surface before watering. You don’t need to fertilize when planting tubers, either. Once you’ve determined that the soil is warm enough, loosen the soil in your planting site. If the soil is heavy or clay, amend it with sand, aged manure or peat moss. This will help lighten the soil, so it can drain properly. Place the tubers in the hole with the points (or eyes) facing up. Cover the tubers with 1 to 3 inches of soil. As the tubers sprout, you can continue adding soil up to ground level.

The Spartacus Dahlia is in Class 1107.Researchers from the Vienna University of Technology in Austria analyzed the pigments, enzyme activity and gene expression in samples of black dahlias to study their deep burgundy hues. Compared to most varieties, black dahlias have huge amounts of anthocyanins and drastically reduced concentrations of flavones, confirmed by the flowers’ low flavone synthase II (FNS) isoenzyme activity, the researchers found. The flowers have been a molecular mystery for years, but scientists think they may have discovered the combination of pigments that create these unusual beauties ”The strategy of bypassing flavones into anthocyanins is a new approach,” study researcher Heidi Halbwirth told LiveScience in an email. Halbwirth added that understanding how the black dahlia manages to knock out the FNS isoenzyme activity could improve techniques for flower breeding and could be used to develop a marker for the color change.
Of the 20,000 varieties of dahlia flowers, only 10 to 20 kinds are black in color. Now researchers say they’ve solved the molecular mystery of how these rare flowers get their dark hues.
But the color of black dahlias is not simply due to increased activity of the plant’s anthocyanin pathway, rather molecular intermediates that would normally form flavones are converted into extra anthocyanins, the team found.
Flower color in dahlias is determined by a mixture of plant metabolites called flavonoids. Scientists already know that red dahlias’ tones come from high concentrations of anthocyanins, flavonoids that are responsible for the color of blueberries, blue corn, blackberries and other fruits and vegetables. White dahlias, meanwhile, are short on anthocyanins but contain large amounts of flavones, flavonoids that are colorless themselves but can alter the shade of a flower by interacting with pigments like anthocyanin.
