Plant Dahlia Bodacious in the heart of flowers beds with nearby summer bulbs like cannas, gladioli and crocosmia. Equally effective in allotments it brings welcome colour, attracts useful pollinating insects and make great cut flowers which you can sell on or share with fellow growers.
Dahlia Bodacious makes a great focal plant surrounded by shorter grasses and other red bedding flowers including petunias, red verbenas and red busy Lizzies.
When you receive your bulb-like tuber, plant straight away in a pot filled with a specially-formulated bulb compost like Dalefoot Wool Compost for Bulbs. If you plan to plant in a bed, just add a spadeful or two per square metre of the Wool Compost into the top layer of the existing soil.
If you can’t plant the tuber straight away leave it somewhere cool, dark and airy like an unheated shed. Look to planting your bulb within five to seven days.
