Cultivation instructions

Planting Indoors: N/A

Planting Outdoors. Cultivate soils to a depth of 15cms and add grit if drainage is a problem. Dahlias are not frost hardy and therefore should either be started off indoors or in a greenhouse and not planted out until late April/ May or early June depending on your location in the country. In some very mild south coastal locations this date can be brought forward by several weeks. The tubers can be lifted in the late autumn and stored in a frost-free place over winter. Alternatively if your soils are free draining they can be left over winter as long as they are well mulched.

Gladioli, Ixia and Lilies are winter hardy and can be left outside all year long and will flower again the following summer. Follow the planting instructions below for the best results

Lilies are very hardy and can be left in the ground to over winter for a number of years.

Remember to feed them all when they are growing with bone meal or similar

Care Tips:

Dahlias will need to be protected if over wintering in the garden.
