Grow your Dahlias

10/02/2019 By HC


As promised, we are reminding you that it’s time to purchase your Dahlias… just not quite time yet to plant them out. We are dusting off the winter frost and beginning to delve into the possible beauties that await to fill the year ahead with an array of colour and style. And so, with the much loved and coveted Dahlias of late, we have our capsule collection to share and our list of test Dahlias we are going to be trialling out this year.

So what’s your style? With the Dahlia renaissance we have had so many clients expressing desire –  quickly succeeded by trepidation and even intimidation. Remember this? Our guide to growing Dahlias Dahlias: a dark art?

So use that as your starting point, put all doubts aside and start to enjoy selecting what cut flowers your heart may desire from this massive banquet of possibilities.

In our test fields 2019, HC are probing into the world of vibrant pinks and peaches. On trend : the corals combined with hot pinks, enhanced by frothy peachy and creamy textures and tones. Yum.

I believe we chose these last year, I think in October. Just look at all the dresses for the Grammys, Emmys, Brits, Oscars these last two weeks. Pink is in. Think of an ice-cream parlour of florals. That’s our design & style objective this year. Roll out the pink carpet…
