Dahlia French Can Can (Apricot flowers with red/orange streaks that are ideal for cut flowers).
Plant from March onwards, for flowering all summer. Perfect border or bedding plant, good for cut flowers. Short varieties can also be grown in containers on the patio or balcony. For early flowering, tubers may be started off in boxes in April; use a light soil mixed with compost. Keep slightly moist, cool and free from frost. When the danger of frost has passed, plant out the sprouted tubers. If used as a cut flower, cut flowers only when completely developed.
