Planting Conditions

Growing Dahlia Wittemans Best requires planting it in well-drained soil enriched with organic matter. It thrives in full sun to partial shade, with at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day to ensure optimal growth and abundant flowering. When selecting a location, consider providing support such as stakes or a trellis to help the plant maintain its upright growth habit and prevent damage from wind or heavy rain.

Watering & Feeding

Watering is an important aspect of caring for Dahlia Wittemans Best. It is best to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged, as overly wet conditions can lead to root rot. Regular watering, especially during dry periods, is essential to promote healthy growth and vibrant blooms. Applying a layer of mulch around the base of the plant helps retain moisture, suppress weed growth, and maintain a cool root environment.

General Care

Deadheading spent blooms is recommended to encourage continuous flowering throughout the season. Removing faded flowers not only enhances the plant's appearance but also diverts its energy towards producing new blooms. As the growing season progresses, the plant may benefit from periodic fertilisation with a balanced, water-soluble fertiliser to provide the necessary nutrients for healthy growth and prolific flowering.
