Uncle Hankey is a wonderful and hard-to-find variety of decorative Dahlia. In mid-summer, it produces lots of large, very attractive blooms that are held on tall, sturdy stems. The flower heads are white, and each petal is tipped and edged in red and pink. A real show-stopper that would look at home in any bed or border. Grows to a height of around 70cm, making it suitable for pots and containers.
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. 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.
