    More Information

    Dahlia Natal is a deep magenta Pom Pom type dahlia. Pom Pom dahlias produce lots of small, tightly formed, almost perfectly spherical flowers which sit amongst deep green and thick foliage.

    Cutting the first buds off in early summer encourages a great number of flowers. Removing dead flowers throughout the rest of the season will give the plant the energy to flower for a longer period, from July right through to October.

    Dahlias have wonderful ability to regenerate which makes them perfect for cuttings and propagation. So, Dahlia Natal could provide you with numerous tubers from the parent plant.

    How do I plant Dahlia Tubers?

    Plant dahlia tubers in well draining soil and keep watering regularly without soaking as this can cause the tuber to rot. You can plant dahlia tubers directly in the ground from late April or you can pot them up and place in a greenhouse to encourage early growth. A touch of fertiliser occasionally will promote large, healthy plants. Make sure you give them plenty of room and stake the stems if they get too tall.

    Storing Dahlia Tubers

    Dahlias are not frost hardy and may need to be lifted in November. In well-drained soils, leave the tubers in the ground and mulch over to protect against frosts. In colder climates, or heavier soils, lift and store your dahlia tubers over winter.

    If you are lifting and storing over winter, cut back foliage and carefully lift your dahlia tubers out of the soil. Allow them to dry off naturally and clean away any soil. Trim the stems and cut off any fine roots. Make sure the tubers are completely dry before storing them in open trays or boxes. Pack with dry sand or vermiculite. Leave the crowns exposed and keep them frost free.

    Replant your Dahlia tubers the following spring.

    If you left them in the ground, once the risk of frosts have passed and you start to see signs of growth again, the mulch can be removed.
