The XXL range of dahlias are unique in that they have large decorative flowering blooms that can often be up to a super-size 15cms across but although the flowers are large, the plants themselves are classed as dwarf bedding, making ideally suited to a smaller garden. They can be grown at the front of the border alongside other summer flowering plants or grown with other annuals in patio container displays.

Large glowing orange and yellow flowers that can grow up to 15cm across will shine brightly from borders and pots when you grow this gorgeous dahlia, XXL Sunset.  The strong stemmed blooms stand above the rich green foliage and are long lasting as a cut flower.

Our Plug Plants

Our plug plants are supplied in four sizes; small, medium, large and jumbo plugs....
The foliage height will differ depending on variety.

Small Plugs - Trays of 40
The most economical way to purchase your plants. Securely rooted, strong plants in mini-plugs of compost. Will need to be transplanted and grown on a windowsill, or in a greenhouse or conservatory, before planting out ready to flower. Compost volume around 2.3cm deep x 1.3cm square. Foliage height 1.5cm-5cm depending on variety)

Medium Plugs - Trays of 20
Our brassicas and lettuce are sold as medium plugs. Securely rooted, strong plants in mini-plugs of compost. Will need to be transplanted and grown for a short while on a windowsill, or in a greenhouse or conservatory, before planting out ready to flower. Compost volume around 3cm deep x 2cm square. Foliage height 1.5cm-5cm depending on variety)

Large Plugs - Packs of 5
Pot Ready, Large, Healthy plants, individually rooted in large plugs of compost. Ideal for planting into baskets, containers or small areas in the garden. Best results achieved if grown on for a short while in 9cm pots prior to planting out if planting straight into garden borders. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 4cm deep x 3.5cm square. Foliage height 5cm-12cm depending on variety)

Jumbo  Plugs - Packs of 3
Our premium perennials are supplied as Jumbo plugs. These plans would benefit from potting into large pots (5” upwards”) for a few weeks before planting out in the garden.  Compost volume around 5cm deep x 5cm square. Foliage height 5cm-20cm depending on variety)

General Growing Advice

Using a good quality multi-purpose compost, pot up your plugs into 10cm pots. Once your plug plants have been potted on and labelled, water them in well and grow on for around 5-6 weeks.  Water once the compost starts to dry out.

If preferred you can pot on the plugs into hanging baskets, flower bags or pots. Add a slow release plant food like Miracle-Gro Slow Release All Purpose Plant Food  to your compost which will give extra nutrients for strong and healthy plant growth.

Keep plants frost free until mid/late May and then harden off before being placed in their final positions when the risk of frost has passed in your area.

Water as necessary giving a liquid feed such as Neudorff Organic Plant Feed as instructed throughout the growing season.

***For packs of 20/40 plug plants gently remove the small plugs from the tray by pushing up from the bottom using a pencil.

Dahlia XXL Advice

Dahlia XXL produce many flowers but on shorter stems making them ideal for patio pots and planting at the front of garden borders.

When you receive your plug plants, give them a drink of tepid water if the compost appears to be dry and then pot them up.

Use a good quality multi-purpose compost and plant into a pot that is 13cm or larger. Water well and place in a frost-free spot.

Dahlias grow quickly and you may need to pot them on into a larger container before planting into their final flowering positions.  

Dahlias are sensitive to frost damage so do not be tempted to put them outside if there is a risk of frost in your area.

Use a multi-purpose feed fortnightly throughout the summer to encourage lots of flower growth. Deadheading regularly will ensure that the plants continue to bloom until the first frosts.

Dahlias prefer a sunny position but some partial shade in the afternoon in intense heat.

Brookside Nursery Top Tip – To counteract any possible mildew that may form on the leaves, remove some of the bottom leaves by mid-July. This helps to improve air circulation around the plant.
