Planting Conditions

When it comes to planting, Souvenir d'Eté thrives in well-drained soil enriched with organic matter. It prefers full sun to partial shade, with at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day for optimal growth and flowering. Choose a location that offers protection from strong winds, as the delicate blooms can be easily damaged.

Watering & Feeding

Regular watering is essential for the health and vigour of Dahlia Souvenir d'Eté. Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged, as excessive moisture can lead to root rot. Water deeply when the top inch of soil feels dry, allowing the water to reach the root zone. Applying a layer of mulch around the base of the plant will help retain moisture, suppress weed growth, and regulate soil temperature.

General Care

To encourage continuous blooming, it is recommended to deadhead spent flowers regularly. This not only improves the overall appearance of the plant but also redirects its energy towards producing new blooms rather than seed production.
