Dahlia ‘New Baby’
Cute as a button Dahlia ‘New Baby’ is perfect for a zingy addition to your collection.
For flower arranging it’s small enough to tuck into bouquets and Jam Jars for a colour ‘pop’ and makes an excellent buttonhole for Autumn Weddings.

Cutting /Vase Life:
Dahlias do not continue to open once cut so pick when blooms are ¾ of the way open. Check the back of the flower head to check all the petals are perfect. The petals turn papery, drop and lose colour once they start to go over. Deadhead flowers to give plants back the energy to ripen the next flower rather than work on producing seed.
Place flowers straight into ready buckets of water, we rest our blooms for a few hours in water, this is called conditioning.
