    More Information

    Dahlia Pompom Sunny Boy is a warm and dusky orange, tipped with small red accents at the end of each floret. Pom pom dahlias produce lots of small round flowers which sit amongst thick, deep green foliage.

    Cutting the first buds off in early summer helps to promote more flowers continue to deadhead throughout the rest of the summer to prolong the flowering period. They might be small flowers, but they will provide lots of colour from July to October.

    Planting Dahlia Tubers

    Plant dahlia tubers in well draining soil and keep watered without soaking as this can cause the tuber to rot. You can plant the dahlia tuber 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.

    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.
