Planting Information:

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

Plant Dahlia's after the last Spring frost and soil has warmed to 15°C (60°F). Pick a well drained, rich, organic flower bed or planter to plant into. Loosen the soil to a depth of  30 cm (12")  before planting.  Add compost and all-purpose granular fertilizer to the planting area and mix well. Dig a hole and plant the tubers, keeping the stem(s) or sprouts upright. The top of the tubers, where the sprout emerge, 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.  If planting in a container, ensure there are adequate drainage holes.  

Tips:

- 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.

When the plants are 30 cm (12") tall, pinch off the top of the main stem.  This will stimulate branching producing more stems and flowers.

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

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.
