Growing Beautiful Dahlias

About Dahlias

Dahlias are grown from tubers (similar to a bulb, but thin-skinned like a potato). Plant tubers in the springtime, about the same time as you would your vegetable gardens or when the ground is warm enough to work up and play in daily. Plant them in a full sun location (giving them 6-8 hours of direct sunlight) and enjoy blooms all summer long. They will bloom and provide you with color and abundant flowers for cutting and enjoying throughout the summer. The more you cut a dahlia plant, the more it will bloom. Most cut dahlias will last up to 5 days once cut and treated.

Grower's Note

There is not a black & white way to grow dahlias. As farmers, we adjust each year to have a flourishing crop, and you will need to do the same. Mother Nature has been changing, and for our climate in the Pacific Northwest, this has meant hotter and drier summers, resulting in us watering longer and deeper, along with adding more fertilizer throughout the season.
