Planting Conditions

Choose a well-draining location in your garden that receives at least six hours of direct sunlight each day. Prepare the soil by adding organic matter, such as compost, to improve its fertility and drainage.

Watering & Feeding

Water the Dahlia regularly, aiming to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Provide deep watering sessions to ensure the moisture reaches the roots. During hot and dry periods, increase the frequency of watering to prevent the soil from drying out completely. Avoid overhead watering, as wet foliage can lead to diseases.

General Care

Pinch off the top growth of the young plants when they reach about 12 inches in height. This encourages branching and a bushier growth habit. Deadhead faded blooms regularly to promote continuous blooming. In late fall, after the first frost, cut back the foliage to about 4 to 6 inches above ground level.
