Collection: Dahlia Tubers


Dahlia tubers are a great way to start dahlia plants!  Here's what you need to know:

  • Don't plant right before a rain. They don't let to get too wet until they have roots, so plan to plant them in a dry place or start them in pots if you need better control.
  • Don't plant too early. They like warm soil! Mother's Day is typically safe in Northern VA. Learn your region's "sweet spot."
  • Do make sure soil is well draining and aged compost is used to ensure healthy soil
  • Do inspect your tubers the day they arrive. You should see an eye; plant the tuber horizontally with the eye face-up for best results.
