Growing Bishop of York 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.

Planting Companions for Bishop of York

At 90cm tall, he is stately but not tricky or top heavy, so it lends itself well to growing either in pots on a sunny patio (plant it with some bronzed grasses for a fabulous effect) or to planting in the mid section of beds and borders. Here it combines fabulously with other 'hot' and exotic companions – think cannas (either with green or bronze foliage), cotinus, ricinus and phormiums (the cream and green varieties look wonderful together). 

Did You Know?

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