Dahlia Bishop’s Children


Few people know that the Dahlia was originally introduced as a food crop rather than an ornamental. Dahlias are easy and cheap to grow from seed. This beautiful Dahlia mix is known for its dark purple foliage and a vibrant array of flower colours in vivid pink, coral and orange. It makes a stunning and productive cutting flower but we also like to eat the tubers which can be made into delicious rosti.

Average 20 seeds.

Sowing info

Sow February to April and germinate at 20-30C on the surface of damp peat free compost and just cover to a depth of around 5mm. Seedlings will appear in around 7-21 days. Do not exclude light at any stage, as this helps germination. Grow on in cooler, well lit conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm apart.

Growing info
