This is a superb collection, Dahlias provide a long period of colour in your garden. Dahlias can be started off indoors during January to March. Alternatively they can be planted outdoors in the garden or containers in late March when the fear of frost has passed. To store until then, keep in a cool, dry and frost free location.
Dahlias provide a huge amount of colour and can be lifted each year to overwinter for the following year.
