Dahlia 'Oakwood Goldcrest'

Plant details

Dahlia 'Oakwood Goldcrest' is a tall-growing, semi-cactus dahlia, with large, bright yellow spiky blooms. It's ideal for growing in a mixed herbaceous border, where its flowers will bring out the colours of other blooms. It's also excellent for cutting, and is well used on the show bench.

For best results, grow in full sun in fertile, well-drained soil. Stake plants early on to protect blooms. Deadhead regularly and feed with a potash-rich fertiliser to prolong flowering. Lift tubers after the first frosts and store them in a cool, dry situation until March. Then pot them up and keep them in a temperate greenhouse before planting out in late May.
