Planting Conditions

Dahlia Honka Yellow thrives in full sun, requiring at least six hours of direct sunlight daily for optimal blooming. Plant it in well-drained soil, amended with compost or well-rotted manure for added fertility. Space the plants adequately to allow for good air circulation, which helps prevent diseases. In regions with hot Summers, some afternoon shade can be beneficial to protect the blooms from scorching. Dahlia tubers should be planted in Spring, once the danger of frost has passed, and the soil has warmed up. Provide support, such as stakes or cages, to help the tall stems remain upright.

Watering & Feeding

Water Dahlia Honka Yellow regularly, aiming to keep the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. During hot and dry periods, provide deeper watering to ensure the roots receive adequate moisture. Applying a layer of mulch around the plants helps to retain soil moisture and prevent weed growth. Fertilise every 4-6 weeks during the growing season with a balanced fertiliser to support healthy growth and abundant flowering. Avoid excessive nitrogen fertilisers, as they can promote lush foliage at the expense of flower production.

General Care

Dahlia Honka Yellow is a relatively low-maintenance plant. Regular deadheading of spent blooms encourages continuous blooming and helps maintain a tidy appearance. Remove any faded or discolored leaves to promote good airflow and minimise the risk of diseases. Stake or cage the tall stems to provide support and prevent them from bending or breaking under the weight of the flowers. In areas with cold Winters, lift the tubers in fall and store them in a cool, dry location until the next planting season. With proper care, Dahlia Honka Yellow will reward you with an abundance of radiant yellow blooms that bring joy and beauty to your garden.
