★ Preferred location and planting
Dahlias prefer a sunny location. This could be in the border, but they will also thrive in pots on the terrace or balcony. If planted in containers, however, they will require large ones filled with enough potting compost for proper growth. When planting in the border, dig a large hole of at least 15 cm across and 15 cm deep. Cover the tubers with 2-3 cm of soil, tamp down the soil after planting, and water the plants generously.

These plants will also require sufficient quantities of water during cultivation, whether this is in a container or in the garden. This is important for their development as well as for the initiation of flower buds. A soil that retains moisture is definitely an advantage. When watering with a watering can, adding a little liquid fertiliser can’t hurt. The plants will then produce even more flowers.

 

Not what you are looking for? No problem, we have plenty other fabulous Dahlias!

Planting Instructions

1. Planting should happen in spring after all danger of frost is gone

2. Space the tubers 3-4 ft apart for large dahlias or 2 ft. apart for smaller dahlias

3. Dig a 12 x 12 inch deep hole (30 x 30 cm)

4. Mix organic matter to the soil that has been removed

5. Fill the hole with the above mix to a depth of 6 inches

6. Put in the tuber horizontally, eye facing upward

7. Cover it with the remainder of the soil

8. Press the soil down around the roots and water the planting area thoroughly

9. When the sprout emerges from the ground, gradually add more soil mix until the hole is totally filled.

Care

★ Dahlias thrive on regular rainfall in most areas though will require watering in arid and desert climates.

★ Dahlias grow in fertile, humus-rich, well-drained soils.

★ Feed monthly with bloom type fertilizer to ensure full blooms

★ Pinch back new growth when the dahlia is a foot high (30 cm) to promote a compact, bushy growth

★ Remove spent blooms to encourage new blooms

★ The stalks are woody, so aphids can attack them. A spray with insecticidal soap or even physically washing the aphids off a few times with a strong jet of water usually solves this.

★ Cut back almost to ground level in fall, before lifting and storing for the winter.

★ In USDA zone 9 dahlias can be treated as perennial hardy bulbs and left in the ground. In zones 7-8 and below, dahlias either need to be lifted and stored for winter in a dry and cool place - between 50°F and 60°F (10°C and 15°C), or treated as annuals with new tubers or bedding plants planted each spring. 

★ If you decide to leave the dahlia tubers in the ground over winter, apply a 6 - 12 inches of mulch over the ground
