The petals of this very jaunty dahlia radiate out like a windmill from the rich yellow centre. They have a red reverse so when they curl in on themselves it makes it look as though the tips of the petals have been dipped in raspberry jam. This is a new form but we think it will be around for many years to come.

  • Garden care: Provide a high-nitrogen liquid feed each week in June, then a high-potash fertiliser each week from July to September. Once the first frosts of autumn have blackened the foliage, carefully lift and clean the tubers and allow them to dry naturally indoors. Place the dry tubers in a shallow tray just covered with slightly moist potting compost, sand or vermiculite. Store in a frost-free place, checking frequently over the winter months.
