200mm Potted Dahlia Cafe au Lait - In bloom - Pick Up Only
We have a special offer. A large batch of in bloom, tall and strong plants of Dahlia Cafe au Lait did not go out to nurseries on time. As such, we are offering these plants as a CLICK & COLLECT option, from the warehouse in Silvan.
Orders must be placed prior to 10am Monday the 8th of March, with collection available that day from 11am. Stock will be brought over, put aside for the individual customer for collection.
We are unable to offer this as an ongoing service, it will be Monday the 8th (Labour Day Public Holiday) collection only.
These plants are in bloom/bud, and may have old flower buds/seed heads forming on them. They will likely need a stake, due to the size of the plants and the blooms, average height of the plants are 1.3m.
A unique opportunity to pick up one of the hottest plants on the market at the moment.

POTS ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR POSTING.
Stock is limited and available on a first in, first gets basis. We have never had to offer our potted stock in this way before, but with the cancellation of our major shows for this year, we are attempting to recover some of our lost revenue.
Click and collect is an option, at an arranged time. If you wish to click and collect from our 'drive through' option in Silvan, please select as such in the delivery optioins.
For best performance when planting your Dahlia select a position that is free draining, in either the full sun or part shade. Using a fork, prepare the ground to a depth of 25cm, ensuring the soil is light and friable. The tuber should be planted no deeper than 5cm below the soil surface, top dressing with a couple of handfuls of cow or sheep manure and a bed of mulch.
Dahlias flower from November right through until the first frosts for your area send them into their dormancy, often blooming for a good 6mths of the year. They are exceptional cut flowers, and make a brilliant addition to any picking garden.
Dahlias can be harvested and divided over the winter months when they are in their dormancy. It is important to wait for the plant to fully die down prior to harvesting. You can then share with friends or spread to new positions around the garden.
