Flowering Months
Feed and water dahlia plants regularly throughout the growing season. Pinch out the growing tip of each young stem to encourage bushier growth and more flowers. Taller varieties may require staking with garden canes to support their tall stems. Deadhead faded dahlia flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced. With the first autumn frosts, lift the plants from their positions and trim away old stems to 5cm above the tuber. Clean any remaining soil from the tubers and store over winter in peat or sand, in a cool but frost free position. Replant dahlia tubers the following spring for another spectacular display!
Pot up dahlia plug plants and grow them on in warm frost-free conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. Prior to planting, prepare the soil by digging in plenty of well rotted manure or compost. After all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise dahlia plants to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before planting into their final positions on fertile, moist, well drained soil in full sun.
