Dahlia 'Blue Boy'
Dahlia tubers can be planted 10cm deep in fertile well drained soil, outdoors in spring when the frost has disappeared. They prefer to be in a sunny location and spaced at approximately 45cm apart.
In areas where there is extreme cold, dig up dahlias and store in a cool place over the winter. Apply a high potash fertiliser every few weeks in the summer to help growth and they can be dead headed when necessary.
Well-formed lilac-pink flowers provide colour in the border for many months from midsummer. For an outstanding display mix it with most shades of pink or purple, as well as silvers and blues. 90cm Tall
