Dahlia ‘Break Out’
I have been growing Dahlia ‘Break Out’ for a couple of years now and I am truly in love.
Huge sumptuous flowers are cream towards the centre turning more pale pink as they open, the tones are breath-taking.
We looked at this Dahlia a lot on Instagram this summer taking it round the garden and it just seems to go with everything!
Stands up well in rain. The perfect new addition to add to your dahlia collection.
I don’t think I need to say much more. Just look at it!

Cutting /Vase Life:
Dahlias do not continue to open once cut so pick when blooms are ¾ of the way open. Check the back of the flower head to check all the petals are perfect. The petals turn papery, drop and lose colour once they start to go over. Deadhead flowers to give plants back the energy to ripen the next flower rather than work on producing seed.
Place flowers straight into ready buckets of water, we rest our blooms for a few hours in water, this is called conditioning.
