The striking flower heads are unique in structure and will bring a new dimension to your garden by creating an explosion effect with spiky petals of the most incredible colour. Bring your garden further to life by mixing Dahlia Purple Gem with rich plum colours or near black colours to create an amazing contrast. We love Dahlias as they are easy to grow and maintain and Purple Gem won’t fail to disappoint. Dahlia Purple Gem is hardy to UK weather and grows well in pots, containers or borders. Purple Gem can be planted outside after the frost has been or if you wish to start early then you can start plant purple gem in pots or containers indoors.
Dahlias work really well as a cut flower and look fantastic when you cut them straight from the stem and bring indoors to create a striking display in the home. It is also deciduous, so it will shed its leaves annually, and are low maintenance with little effort being rewarded with lots and lots of flowers!
. Plant Dahlia Purple Gem horizontally roughly around 12cm deep into the ground. It is important to allow enough room between each tuber to prevent overcrowding. Give Purple Gem a high nitrogen liquid feed in its essential growth stage for a real boost in growth, then switch to a feed rich in potash once the fertilisation process has taken place.See Full Description +
