Dahlia 'Bishop of Leicester' grows to 60/70cm in height producing a bushy plant with dark green leaves and pale pink/white flowers. Each flower has darker pink bands running down the centre of each petal. As a 'single' dahlia this variety is good for bees and other pollinators. We think 'Bishop of Leicester' is a great option for contaniers or the front or middle of a herbacious border. It's relatively low height means don't need to worry to much about support.

Dahlia 'Teesbrooke Audrey' Planting Instructions
Dahlia tubers can be planted outdoors in the late spring when the chance of frost has passed. To get a head start you can plant your tubers up in pots in a greenhouse or indoors and transfer them to the garden after the risk of frost. Store in a cool, dry, frost free environment until planting. Dahlias prefer a sunny position and should be planted 10 - 12 cm deep and around 45 - 60 cm apart.
