Dahlias are incredibly easy to grow and provide some of the biggest and most spectacular blooms in the garden. In just a single season, Dahlia plants grow into a full and lush bush, opening their brilliant, abundant blooms non-stop from midsummer through the fall.
These hugely varietal flowers are a collector’s dream, with little starburst blooms to plate-sized flowers in every hue imaginable. Dahlias are relatively sturdy plants if grown in the right lighting, heat, and soil. Care of dahlia flowers may vary dependent upon your zone, but here are a few dahlia growing tips to help you get maximum blooms and healthy, bushy plants.
Dig down 8 to 12 inches (20.5 to 30.5 cm.) and add compost to increase the porosity and nutrient density since dahlias are big feeders. A good dahlia growing tip is to take this time to incorporate 2 pounds per 100 square feet (1 kg. per 9.5 sq. m.) of a 5-10-15 fertilizer. Small plants can be spaced 12 inches (30.5 cm.) apart, but the big dahlias need to be planted 3 feet (1 m.) apart to accommodate the large bushes. Lay the tuber sprout-side up 3 inches (7.5 cm.) deep in a trench and cover it over with the prepared soil.
