Dahlia Tubers for Shipping
Welcome to our Dahlia Tuber Sale!
A few things you should know about our plants:
Some but not all dahlia tubers will be pre-sprouted. These are our tried and true varieties for the South. Each dahlia tuber will have 2 tubers attached to give you a greater success rate for planting. Over the next month will be ideal for planting dahlias in the south because of our intense summer heat.
THESE WILL SHIP OUT TUESDAY, MAY 30TH VIA FEDEX 2 DAY AND WILL ARRIVE THURSDAY JUNE 1ST.
How To Plant:
Plant in full sun in well drained, fertilized soil. Dig a hole that's about 5-6 inches deep. Set the tubers with the growing points, or “eyes,” facing up, and cover with soil. Do not plant too deep. Eyes should be just below ground level. Do not water deeply until dahlia begins to grow. Tall, large-flowered cultivars will require support.
In zones 8 and warmer, dahlias can be overwintered in the ground. In zones 7 and colder, dig up dahlias after the foliage has died back and store in a cool, dark and dry place like a basement and plant the following Spring after danger of frost has passed.
