HOW TO GROW
Most of our locally sourced seeds can be planted in pots or sown directly into a garden bed. If planting in pots, use a premium quality potting mix. If planting in the garden, it's best to add some organic matter (compost) to the soil. Some seeds will need to be germinated in a seed tray or small pot before being transplanted to a more permanent home. See below for seed-specific instructions.
Dahlia Pompon Mix (Dahlia variabilis)
When to plant: Spring, once all the frosty mornings are done Where: Somewhere sunny Planting depth: 0.5ish cm Spacing: 40cm apart How big will it get? 90cm–120cm
Dahlia Pompon Mix is made up of pom-pom shaped flowers in shades of red, white and yellow.
Dahlias will die back when they are all done, but will pop back up the following spring. Dahlias develop tubers in the ground that can be dug up and divided to be replanted or left in the ground.
Marigold Crackerjack Mix (Tagetes erecta)
