    Growing Dahlia Tubers

    Caring for your Dahlia tubers is a straightforward endeavour that rewards you with striking blooms. For optimal growth, choose a site that receives a good amount of sunlight.

    Start by planting dahlia tubers after the danger of frost has passed and at a depth where the top of the tuber is just beneath the soil surface. Plant in a well-drained and fertile soil.  Regular watering is necessary, especially during dry spells, to keep the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged.

    You can support your dahlias with stakes as they grow to keep the heavy blooms from toppling the plant. Deadhead any spent flowers to encourage continued blooming.

    Storing Dahlia Tubers

    Dahlias are not frost hardy and may need to be lifted in November. In well-drained soils, leave the tubers in the ground and mulch over to protect against frosts. In colder climates, or heavier soils, lift and store your dahlia tubers over winter.

    If you are lifting and storing over winter, cut back foliage and carefully lift your dahlia tubers out of the soil. Allow them to dry off naturally and clean away any soil. Trim the stems and cut off any fine roots. Make sure the tubers are completely dry before storing them in open trays or boxes. Pack with dry sand or vermiculite. Leave the crowns exposed and keep them frost free.

    Replant your Dahlia tubers the following spring.

    If you left them in the ground, once the risk of frosts have passed and you start to see signs of growth again, the mulch can be removed.
