Top Tips

  • When the plants flower, you will notice one large central bud and two, smaller side buds.
  • You can either remove the side buds to get one large flower or keep them to get three flowers which will be smaller.
  • Dahlias are fairly hardy, although frost-tender perennials and during mild winters they will overwinter successfully under a heavy mulch.
  • However, we do recommend where possible that tubers are lifted in the autumn and dried upside down before storing in a frost-free place over the winter.
  • Stored tubers can then be started back into growth the following spring before planting back out.
  • If you find that earwigs are a problem, the organic way to control them is to position pots filled with straw upside down on canes spaced around your dahlias.

Care Information

  • Dahlias are tender tubers and do best when potted up initially in March or early April, into large pots (2 - 3L) filled with multi-purpose compost.
  • Placed in a light, frost-free place and kept moist, they'll quickly form bushy plants by the time the frosts have ended, ready to be planted out into the garden.
  • In the garden, dig a hole at least 30cm wide x 30cm deep for each one, spacing each tuber 75cm apart.
  • If you donít have anywhere to start them in pots, you can put the tubers straight into the ground when the frosts are nearly over.
  • Once a fortnight, feed them with a liquid feed such as our Blooming Fast Superior plant feed. During dry periods, water at least once a week.
  • Dahlias should be deadheaded regularly to encourage more blooms and you will need to stake the plants to prevent the flowers from breaking the stems.
