Dahlia ‘Bishop of Llandaff’

Dahlia 'Bishop of Llandaff'

November tip: To prevent rot or frost damage over winter, lift the tubers from the soil (the swollen root that looks a bit like a sweet potato) and store in a cool, dry place over winter. This is optional if you can ensure they’ll be frost-free in the soil and won’t get waterlogged.
