Planting Dahlia is a piece of cake. The perfect time is in spring when there is no chance of frost. Just follow these four steps.
Choose a sunny spot in the garden where the Dahlia can shine. Some Dahlias grow to a height of 2 metres, others 30 cm. Please give them a place where the length of the Dahlia can easily stand out from the rest of the planting.
Rake the soil well to make it nice and airy. Remove weeds and small stones at the same time so that the Dahlia feels entirely at home.
Dig a hole in which the Dahlia bulb will fit comfortably. Place the Dahlia in the hole with the piece of the old stalk facing upwards. Cover the Dahlia with the dug soil. Make sure the hole is not too deep because Dahlias like to feel the warmth of the sun. They only need to be planted a few centimetres below the surface; the crown under the old flower stem may even be visible.
Pour a generous splash of water over the planted Dahlia. This ensures that the tuber quickly starts to take root.
