CHILD’S PLAY

Gardens Illustrated Magazine - - Dig In News -

March is the month to plant out dahlia tu­bers, or for a thriftier op­tion sow dahlia seed in­doors. One of the best to sow from seed is the seed mix Dahlia Bishop’s Chil­dren, which pro­duces richly coloured, sin­gle-stemmed blooms – in a mix of colours from pink to blood red – that look fab­u­lous against the dark-bronze fo­liage. They will flower in their first year and make a bril­liant cut flower. Once the first sea­son is over, you can save the tu­bers for the fol­low­ing year. Avail­able from Chiltern Seeds, priced £2.25 for a packet of roughly 50 seeds. chilternseeds.co.uk
