Planting Out Dahlias Into Their Final Positions

Planting Out Dahlias Into Their Final Positions
Plant out your dahlias into their final positions once all danger of frosts has passed. They love lots of natural light, so plant in a sunny position, ideally close to a little shelter, such as a wall, fence, or hedge. Dahlias are tolerant of most soil types, but will perform best if planted in moist, rich, and free draining soil. If your soil is a little heavy, dig in plenty of well-rotted manure or other organic matter to help lighten it.

Dahlias are brilliant for growing in large pots and containers where they will provide some height as well as plenty of colour. Just remember to keep well-watered and fed.
