Dahlia ‘Small World’
Dahlia ‘Small World’ is the perfect Dahlia. Probably my No. 1 most useful bloom!
Producing bucketfuls of white mini pom pom blooms all through the season. Its just about the most productive in our collection.
The smaller flowers lend themselves brilliantly to buttonholes, corsages and flower crowns and are excellent in bouquets too.
If you intend to have a 100% home grown Wedding then this Dahlia is vital for you!
For the home gardener and allotment, Dahlia ‘Small World’ makes a handsome garden plant. Stake it well and stand back!

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.
