    More Information

    Tightly formed white petals with irregular mottled pink colouring. Little Robert is slightly smaller than some other Pom Pom Dahlia varieties but at 90cm it still makes an impressive display.

    Plant dahlia tubers in pots from mid spring and place into a frost free warm and sunny environment such as a cold frame, green house or window ledge to get an early start. However, they can be planted straight into the ground from April once the frosts have passed.

    When planting, make sure dahlia tubers have adequate drainage, plant with the eyes (buds) facing upwards. Plant in soil rich in organic matter at a depth of around six inches. Water regularly so that the soil remains damp but not soggy. Regularly removing dead flower heads will prolong the flowering period until October if the weather is kind. Fertilize every other week with a high quality fertilizer to ensure strong growth.

    Dahlias are not frost hardy and will need to be lifted again in November. The young leaves are vulnerable to slugs but as the plant gets older they tend to leave them alone.
