Dahlias are among the great­est of all plants for non-stop sum­mer blooms. Many are so vividly-coloured and flam­boy­ant they can make other flow­er­ing plant ap­pear drab, so are best grown sep­a­rately. My own favourites in­clude ‘drum­stick’ cul­ti­vars which form flower-heads about the size of golf balls. The small size makes them par­tic­u­larly suit­able for vases be­cause they are not top-heavy.
