The Great Dahlia Giveaway

Join the Heligan Gardening Team this January for The Great Dahlia Giveaway.

You may have caught sight of the dazzling array of dahlia blooms that lit up the flower bed in the Steward’s House garden this summer, and perhaps felt inspired to grow some of your own. Now that the blooms have subsided and the tubers have gone to sleep, we have removed them from the soil ready to rest for the winter before being restored once again to full bloom in the warmer months of next year.

We are thrilled to be able to offer some of these beautiful plants to our visitors to take away and grow in your own gardens, all we ask in exchange is for a small donation to our chosen charity of Cornwall Air Ambulance.

The Great Dahlia Giveaway will take place on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th January between 12pm and 2pm each day. Come along to the Flower Garden and meet some of our gardeners, along with expert members of The Cornwall Dahlia Society, and choose the variety that you would like to take home to grow. We hope that you will then look forward to entering your best bloom into the People's Dahlia Competition, 29th-31st August 2020, which welcomes entries from novice growers and new enthusiasts as part of the 40th Annual Cornish Dahlia Show held here at Heligan.
