It’s July and while winter feels like it has just started in some areas, it’s time to start thinking about planting summer bulbs. Summer bulbs are some of the most rewarding plants for colour.
In the case of Dahlias, while not strictly a bulb are one of my favourites, flowering right through summer to late autumn. They are spectacular for a colourful garden display, are the ideal cut flower and perfect for pots.
Follow these simple steps for perfect Dahlias;
- Choose a sunny position away from gusty winds.
- Improve soil with compost, sheep manure or soil improver if growing in the ground.
