Caring for your plant:
- Dahlias are tender plants and need frost protection so at the first sign of frost, cut back, dig up bulbs, brush off earth and store over winter in a dry place. Another school of thought is that you can leave the bulbs in the ground over the winter but at first sign of frost, cut down the stems to the ground and cover with a healthy mound of mulch
- Plant bulbs out in spring with the green shoots pointing upwards - these will start appearing as the weather gets warmer around April time. Flowers will start appearing from June/July onwards and you should reap the rewards year after year
- Keep well watered throughout flowering
- Dahlia stems are stronger than you may think but keep an eye on them as they may need to be staked to prevent them bowing down to the ground or snapping off
