Planting Dahlias & Begonias

Tips For Planting Dahlias

​Dahlias are an outstanding addition to your flower border. Blooming July through fall they make excellent cut flowers.

  • Plant tubers mid-April - May when the soil is warm and danger of frost has passed.

     

  • Choose a sunny location with well-drained soil. An area that receives at least 8 hours of direct sunlight is best.

  • If you have heavier soil add in sand or steer manure to lighten and loosen soil texture.

  • Protect from strong winds.

  • Lay tubers horizontally 4-6” deep. Space tubers 12-24” apart, then cover with soil.

  • Add Bone meal to the soil at planting time.

  • Do not water tubers until they begin to sprout.

  • Apply slug and snail bait to protect new shoots.

  • Begin to feed Dahlias with a granular fertilizer high in phosphorous and potash one month after planting. These are the last 2 numbers in a fertilizer. Bulb Food (3-15-6) or Potato food (6-20-20) are excellent choices.  Repeat on a monthly basis.

  • Stake tall varieties, keep plants well-watered during warm summer months.

  • Remove spent blooms to encourage flowering.

  • Lift tubers after frost has killed the leaves. Store tubers in a box, cover with peat or vermiculite and store in a cool, dark frost-free area.

Tips for Planting Begonia Tubers

Begonias are a wonderful addition to hanging baskets and planters alike. Tolerant of part-sun locations they brighten up a shady spot.

 

  • Start Begonias in 4" peat pots filled halfway with starter soil mix

  • Nestle the rounded end into the starter mix so that the bottom 1/2 of the tuber is covered in soil

  • Water lightly around the tuber, avoiding the tuber itself

  • Place pots in a tray and place on a heat mat or even on top of your fridge where it's warm

  • Once the tubers have 2-3 leaves, cover the tuber with starter soil mix

  • Start to fertilize with Superbloom once every two weeks

  • Move sprouted tubers to a spot with bright indirect light

  • Plants can be gradually acclimatized for outdoor around May long-weekend

  • Once the plants are acclimated, just remove the rim of the peat pot and repot into the new container

  • Begonias grow best in the morning sun and afternoon shade
