How do you plant Dahlias?
The special thing about Dahlias is that they grow from tubers. You can buy Dahlia tubers from March to June. Buy Dahlia tubers at a garden center or online store for flower bulbs and plants.
Plant the tuber in well-fertilized soil. So deep that the end from which the plant grows is just below the ground. Do not plant the tuber upside down, because then it will not grow. You have to be patient, because a plant will only emerge from the tuber after at least 5 weeks.
From early summer you can also order Dahlia plants. You then buy a Dahlia in a pot. You can also put it in the garden. Or you can keep the Dahlia in a pot on your patio. Intratuin has many variants for sale.
