Container Dahlias.com "in America specializes in low growing, border and container suited dahlias.
A word about these dahlias... The "Gallery" and “Melody series of dahlias are the result of 15 years of crossings between common border-dahlias and botanical, genetically low growing dahlias. They are much branching, start blooming in early summer and produce an abundance of flowers during months and months. These varieties with fully double flowers are very effective in the front of borders. They are also well adapted for container growing.

When danger of damage by frost is gone you can plant them in your garden or in containers in the patio, on your deck, balcony or doorsteps. Finally, we are field-testing other low growing dahlias for future offering. These will include "dark" foliage low growing dahlias and other fully double dahlias."
They also have "Growing Dahlias in Containers" DVD video.

See Introduction Page for Gallery Dahlias for the UK

Note - the Bulb Gallery names of Spring Bulb,
Late Summer Bulb,
Autumn Bulb and Winter Bulb refer to when the bulbs are delivered to you, by R.V. Roger not when they flower
