Dahlia Yankee Doodle Dandy, to say this variety is colourful doesn't really do it justice, it has all the impact of a marching band parading around your garden. Blooms have a distinctive layered effect with brightly coloured petals and a secondary ''collar'' in a contrasting colour, this is a real show-stopper. Flowers can be up to 7cm across.

Sow Dahlia Yankee Doodle Dandy on a windowsill or in a greenhouse at approx 15-20°C from early February to mid April on the surface of a good seed compost, firm down and keep compost damp but not too wet, transplant seedlings, spacing them out to 50mm apart, when established plant out in the ground at a distance of 25cm apart after all danger of frost has passed.

Average packet contents 50 seeds

Although this is half hardy perennial is usually grown as an annual as it is more vigorous in its first year. It is a bushy plant that looks equally at home in a border or container.
