In general, these beautiful flowers are planted in mid-April through May, when the ground temperature has reached about 60 degrees. They should be planted in a generally open, sunny location, except in hotter climates where some protection from afternoon sun is desirable. A low-nitrogen fertilizer is recommended within 30 days of planting and 3-4 weeks after that.

Growing dahlias is relatively simple. They enjoy a sunny location, adequate water, and light fertilizer. The most common mistake in dahlia care is overfeeding, so be cautious not to be too heavy or too frequent with the fertilizer. Hand weeding is recommended, as herbicides will of course kill your desirable flowering plants as well as the weeds. At Dahlias.com, you can read more about preventive steps to control pests and other simple methods for growing your blooms to full potential.
Many gardeners enjoy storing dahlia bulbs for next season's enjoyment. Tubers can simply be layered in crates or cardboard boxes with newspaper in between the layers. A storage medium such as lightly dampened peat moss, sand, or pet bedding is ideal for dahlia care. A cool, dry area is best for winter storage.
