A Profusion of Dahlias

The months of July and August is colored with dahlias, but the season could extend up to September or October. These tuberous plants  love the chilly rainy weather here.

Dahlias are easy to propagate, they can be propagated from the tubers or from cuttings. I prefer the cutting method. Sometimes in the rain the tubers could rot and it takes a long time for plants growing from tubers to bloom.

Once they die down they come back on their own in the next season. You really don’t have to do too much. Just feed them well with good NPK  before they start to set buds and the huge blooms will blow your mind away with color and beauty you for a few months to come.  A bi monthly feed helps the plant during the flowering season.
