Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: Plant Dahlias in well-drained soil in a sunny location. Plant in spring, after ground, warms to about 50ยบ F. 1. Dig a hole 3-4" deep. 2. Set the tuberous root firmly in place. 3. Cover the tuberous root with soil and water thoroughly. Supply ample moisture and fertilizer during the growing season. When the plant reaches 1-1/2' in height, trim entire plant to 1'. In about two weeks trim the plant again back to about 1-1/2'. This will encourage your Dahlia to produce an abundance of flowers. Remove all spent flowers.
