Mail order and online plant specialists Woolmans has announced three new and exclusive dahlia collections for the 2018 season – all chosen and selected from trials conducted on their own East Anglian trials field.
Famous for growing chrysanthemums for over a century, not only to exhibitors, but also to flower gardeners who admire the rich autumn colours they display, Woolmans has also been establishing itself as a leading supplier of dahlias.
Tom Stimpson of Woolmans comments “Our dahlia sales over the last couple of years have been very encouraging and we’ve seen particular interest in our collections – sales for these are up by 10% so far this season and are expected to rise further after Christmas. One of the main reasons we grow and trial so many varieties is so the best colours and forms can be carefully chosen to work harmoniously together – enabling us to offer our customers combinations they’ll be pleased with and enjoy”.
The three new dahlia collections being introduced are The Blackberry Swirl Collection featuring one tuber each of Black Touch, Diana’s Memory and Linda’s Baby, The Bountiful Collection comprising one tuber each of Gryson’s Yellow Spider, Macalister’s Pride and Motto and The Happy Collection including varieties Happy Single Flame, Happy Single Kiss and Happy Single Party.
All are priced at £9.95 (plus postage and packing) and will be despatched from late March 2018.
