Dahlia 'City of Alkmaar' is a superb, semi-cactus variety of Dahlia. Produces spectacular, quilled petals of a gorgeous orange-apricot colour that seem to glow amongst the bronze foliage. Blooms from mid-summer right through to Autumn, perfect for adding a splash of late colour when the garden can look a little tired. Grows to a max height of around 100cms. Looks wonderful used as an accent plant in a border or planted amongst other late-flowering plants.

This plant is supplied as a single tuber. Best time to plant is in April. To plant them, dig a hole at least 20-30cm square and around 20-30cm deep for each one. Cover the base of the hole with 10cms of compost, or manure and give it a good dousing with a full watering can and then plant the dahlia at a depth of 15cms. You may need a stout stake, not just a bamboo cane, to support each plant and it is a good idea to knock this in first and then place the plant by its side. Plant in a sunny spot and keep moist yet well-drained. It will need to be lifted in winter - once the foliage dies back simply dig it up and store in a cool, frost free location.

IF ORDERING EARLY, PLEASE NOTE THAT WE SHIP THIS ITEM BETWEEN MARCH & THE END OF APRIL TO ENSURE IT ARRIVES IN PRISTINE CONDITION, AT THE IDEAL PLANTING TIME.
