Stunning soft blushes of pink. It has a distinctive richer toned centre. Good for exhibitions. When at its best this stunning miniature cactus has been likened to a miniature Kiwi Gloria, and that is high accolade indeed. Raised by the Late Peter Greenway, this was, in his opinion, the best of his seedlings and was the result of a 2013 cross between Josudi Telstar and Josudi Neptune. Needs regular watering. Although weatherproof, the quality of blooms produced under cover are far superior. Andromeda is a strong grower getting up to 1.5m high. It appears at its best when left undisbudded, and with as many flowering stems on the plant as it will take, so a double stop is advisable.

Dahlias require a fertile, moist but well-drained soil, and a sunny, sheltered spot. The taller varieties need staking. In autumn, dig up the tubers and overwinter them in a frost-free place, such as a greenhouse or a shed. Bring them back into growth in early April, then plant out in the garden from May onwards.

Shipping Note:

Our Dahlias are all unique varieties propagated here are the nursery. We ship them as growing plants typically 10 to 15cm high, not as tubers. This way you are sure that your plants have the  best opportunity to grow and be successful.  Orders placed for Dahlias are only shipped/available starting in May as we protect them for you from frost until then.

It is important to only plant Dahlias when all chances of frost have passed.  When you place your order you will receive an email to confirm that we have received your order. You will then get a further email when your plants are either shipped or ready to collect from the Garden centre depending on what shipping option you picked at checkout time.
