    More Information

    Dahlia Petra’s Wedding is a pure white Pompom type dahlia. Pom Pom dahlias produce an abundance of small round flowers which sit amongst deep green, thick foliage. Tightly formed and almost perfectly spherical they create beautiful patterns.

    Cut off the first buds in early summer to promote more flowers, continue removing dead flowers throughout the summer to help the dahlia continuously produce new flowers. They might be small flowers but they will give plenty of colour from July to October. A fantastic cutting flower. Dahlias have wonderful ability to regenerate which makes them perfect for cuttings and propagation. So, Petra’s Wedding could provide you with numerous dahlia tubers from the parent plant.

    Planting dahlia tubers

    Plant your dahlia tuber in well draining soil and keep watered without risking soaking and rotting. 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

    Hard frosts will kill dahlia tubers. In well-drained soils, you can leave them in over winter if it is mild, and you cover them with mulch.

    In colder climates, or heavier soils, lift and store your dahlia tubers over winter. Dig them up in November and store them until spring.

    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.
