Instructions

Growing Instructions:

Dahlias are shipped as tubers. If you are not able to plant the tubers upon arrival, store in a cool, dry, dark location.

  1. Dahlias require at least 8 hours of full sun to thrive and bloom abundantly.
  2. Dahlias are cold-sensitive and should not be planted until after all danger of frost has passed and soil has warmed to 15°C (60°F).
  3. Pick a sunny spot with freely draining soil. Dig a hole 10-15 cm (4-6") deep and place the tuber on its side, horizontally, with the growing eye facing up. Once in place, refill the hole with soil. The top of the tuber, where the sprout emerges, should be positioned no more than 2.5-5 cm (1-2”) below the soil surface when the hole is filled. in. Fill in around the tuber, firmly pressing down the soil so it is even with the surrounding ground, and water well. Make sure there are no air pockets in the soil.
  4. If planting in a container, ensure there are adequate drainage holes.

Planting Depth: 10-15 cm (4-6")

Plantling Spacing: 30-46 cm (12-18")

Suggestions

Growing Suggestions:

  • To get a jump start to the flowering season, you can plant the tubers in pots indoors 4-6 weeks before transplanting into the garden.

  • To give your bulbs the best start, amend garden beds with 5-10 cm (2-4") of high-quality compost or well-rotted manure, a light dusting of bone meal, and a balanced organic fertilizer. Mix all ingredients into the soil to distribute evenly.

  • A common mistake when growing dahlias is to overwater tubers you have just planted. Too much water at this early stage can lead to tuber rot. Water once when you first plant the tuber, then wait until you see the first green shoots poking through the soil before watering again.

  • When the plants are 30 cm (12") tall, give them a hard pinch by snipping out 7-10 cm (3-4") of the growing center to encourage low branching, and stimulate more stems and flowers.

  • To prevent disease, keep the foliage of dahlias as dry as possible. Water deeply once or twice a week, allowing the 2.5 cm (1") top of soil to dry out in between waterings.

  • It is important to remove faded (wilted) blooms to encourage new buds. Spent dahlia blooms should be cut off with sharp garden scissors just above the point where the flower stem intersects with a leaf.
