Dahlias are hugely popular with good reason. They’re easy to grow and flower reliably over a long season – often right up to the first frosts – and they’re invaluable in late-summer planting schemes.

Dahlia Mignon Mixed is a low-growing variety that bears bold, yellow-centred blooms in a range of dazzling colours. It works particularly well in pots and containers and provides a generous supply of pollen for bumblebees. Put it to the test by sowing the free Mignon Mixed seeds that come with your subscriber edition of our February 2021 issue.
