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.
Hard frosts will kill dahlia tubers, you can leave them in over winter if it is mild and you cover them with mulch. To be safe, it is often better to dig them up and store them until spring.
