Dahlia tubers ship in the spring


Growers Notes:

  • Dahlias are planted in spring after the soil has warmed up to 60 degrees
  • Plant around the same time you would plant tomato plants and other warm season crops
  • Plant dahlia tubers in an area that receives 6-8 hours of sunlight per day
  • Wet Climates: No extra water until sprout is 5”-6” tall, normal spring rains will give the soil and your tubers all the moisture it needs.  Tubers will rot in soggy soils.
  • Dry Climates:  Your tubers need moisture in the soil to grow.  If your soil is dry during the spring, water lightly once a week to add and retain moisture in the soil
  • After the dahlia sprout is 6”, deep soak every 2-3 days
