Description

Gallery Art Nouveau Dahlia Tubers

Gallery Art Nouveau's breath-taking double blooms are luminous, two-tone purple and mid to light pink.

The blooms last well in a vase, but their short and bushy stems are not convenient to work with.

Growing Gallery Art Nouveau Dahlias

Their compact size and striking flowers are perfect for container displays or the front of a sunny border. Plant in deep, fertile soil with good drainage.

It is important to water dahlias well during dry periods. Adding a bit of soluble food in the watering can once every couple of weeks will encourage prolific flowering throughout summer and autumn. If grown in containers, she needs to be kept especially well watered and fed. Deadhead regularly.

Did You Know?

The Gallery series was crafted over 15 years by Dutch dahlia breeders Fa Gebr Verwer in Lisse, crossing naturally low growing wild dahlias with the best border varieties to make bushier, shorter plants, well suited to container-growing, with an excellent flowering season.
Gallery Art Nouveau, derived from Gallery Art Deco was released in 1997. The collection includes Leonardo, La Tour, Pablo, Rembrandt, Vincent, and Renoir.

Planting Instructions

With the exception of seed, Dahlias can be planted at three stages: as tubers, rooted cuttings and pot-grown plants.

Tubers can be planted at any time from March onwards. The hole should be at least double the diameter of the tuber laid out on the ground. Incorporate about 25% well rotted compost and add plenty of horticultural grit if drainage is in any way doubtful. Plant one tuber per hole, leaving 60-80cms between plants (depending on final size) and make sure the tuber is covered with 10-12cms (4-5") of soil. This will insulate the tuber against frosts in March-May as they will take a couple of months to show.

Rooted cuttings (available from early April onwards) will need to be potted up and kept in a sunny and frost free place until they are ready to be planted out in mid May. Their treatment then is the same as for tubers except they are planted level with rather than 10cms below the surrounding soil level.

Pot grown plants are not delivered until June, and should be planted out immediately in the same way as an established rooted cutting.

The more you deadhead, the more flowers you'll get.
