Fairway Spur: Decorative Dahlia Tubers

If you're a fan of vintage and retro looks, you'll love Fairway Spur Dahlias. This giant decorative type, so big it's often referred to as a 'dinnerplate' dahlia is a sumptuous blend of hazy colours. The petals are a soft mix of apricot and pink, while the flower takes on a bronze tone closer to the centre.

Far from being a regimented shape, the huge, soft flowers have an almost shaggy appearance due to its gently twisted petals: real shabby chic charm. This stunning giant is a top-class exhibition variety, and favoured by many keen growers for its size, beauty and reliability. Generally, its flowers measure 25-28 cms in diameter, but with disbudding and feeding with dilute tomato feed, they can reach a massive 38cm across!

The huge flowers blooms are held on stout bright green stems, above attractive deep green foliage which makes a perfect backdrop towards the back of your border.

The huge flowers are a florist's dream and its colours are bang on trend for floral designers. Just a few stems in a vase make a massive statement.

Growing Fairway Spur 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.

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 Fairway Spur

Flowers this big are difficult to work into mixed borders, so disbud in your cutting bed or allotment for show bench monsters and leave them alone in borders where the gorgeous colour combination of the blooms will improve any display, especially when contrasted with dark grasses or purple-leaved shrubs like Cotinus (the smoke bush) or perennials.
