Learn How To Plant And Care for Your Dahlias
- Planting should happen in spring after all danger of frost is gone
- Space the tubers 3-4 ft apart for large dahlias or 2 ft. apart for smaller dahlias
- Dig a 12 x 12 inch deep hole (30 x 30 cm)
- Mix organic matter to the soil that has been removed
- Fill the hole with the above mix to a depth of 6 inches
- Put in the tuber horizontally, eye facing upward
