Dahlia - Starlight Mixed
This dahlia features fabulous, windswept blooms in every colour of the rainbow. It is a nice, distinct dahlia for bedding or for planting in big groups in patio pots.
Sow seed on the surface of the compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of dry vermiculite or finely sieved compost. Place the seed and tray in a propagator or seal inside a polythene bag and keep at around 20-25C until the seeds germinate. This will take about 7-21 days. When the seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant them individually into 7.5cm pots or multi-cell trays. Before planting out, acclimatise the plants to cooler conditions by putting them outside for a few hours a day for a few weeks.
