Growing Bishop of Auckland Dahlias

All dahlias do best in deep rich soil with good drainage in a sunny spot. If it is windy they will need staking. They are greedy, thirsty plants so will need watering in dry spells, and they will always flower that little bit better if there is a bit of soluble food in the watering can once every couple of weeks.

Unlike most dahlias, he is unlikely to need staking, unless you live in a windy spot.

It is generally more convenient to put support stakes in at planting time, rather than leaving it until there is foliage in the way.

Did You Know?

Llandaff, the original Bishop in the series, was bred by Cardiff nurseryman Fred Treseder in 1927. Leicester, York and Auckland were bred by Van der Linden in Holland in the early 2000's.
