How to Grow Dahlia

Dahlia Germination Information

How to Sow Dahlia:
  • For best results, sow indoors 4-6 weeks before planting outside, maintaining a temperature of 68-70° F
  • Sow outdoors when danger of frost is past and cover the seeds with four times their thickness in soil
  • Germination takes 5-10 days
  • When sowing seed outdoors, we recommend a maximum planting depth of 4X the width of the seed

How to Grow Dahlia:
Spacing:  Space 1-3 feet apart in full sun in good, rich soil; water and fertilize frequently

Additional Care: After the tops have been blacken by frost, dig up the tubers and store them over winter in a bag full of peat moss in a cool place. Replant in spring when danger of frost is past
