Founded by landscape designers Urquhart & Hunt, Organic Bulbs was born of a passion for ecological restoration and a desire to see a fully organic range of flowering bulbs available for sale.
Chosen for their beauty and reliability, this designer curated collection of bulbs and tubers offer exquisite flowers laced with a dual offering of pesticide free nectar and protein rich pollen. These are both essential food sources for foraging pollinators, whose numbers continue to fall as a result of the use of neonicotinoids, climate change and the loss of wildflower habitats.
Now you can get the Dahlia bulb collections featured below at a limited time price of 40% off.
All you've got to do is head to their website organicbulbs.com and apply the code GIOB2021 at checkout.
The Pale Collection
This is a dahlia collection for tonal schemes that make exquisite cut flowers. Dahlia ‘My Love’ works well at the back of an herbaceous border when used with tall grasses and perennials. It has lovely creamy slightly pointed petals that are greenish towards the centre.

The Kitten Grayson Cut Flower Collection
Organic Bulbs have partnered with Kitten Grayson Flowers, a floral studio based in London and Somerset, to compile this romantic collection of soft, delicately hued dahlias with complementary forms. All ideal for the cutting garden. Advocates for biodynamic growing and the importance of soil health, the studio’s work is informed by Kitten Grayson's almost synesthetic relationship with nature and commitment to sustainability.

The Single Flower for Pollinators collection
Dahlias bloom from July through to the first Autumn frosts, providing late season colour and a vital food source for foraging pollinators. These open-flowered varieties with their juicy nectar rich centres act as perfect platforms for butterflies and bees to land and feed.

The Carnival Collection
A dazzling selection for those delighting in hot colour schemes and a variety of forms and sizes, the Carnival Collection adds joy and exuberance to any border. Dahlia ‘Menorca’ and Dahlia ‘Sylvia’ also perform brilliantly in pots and all make an excellent cut flower and a fun hot combination of colous for summer flower arrangements that will bloom prolifically right through the season. Remember that the more you cut and deadhead, the more they will flower.
