Position and soil
Dahlia requires a well-draining soil, if your gardens soil has too much clay then add some sand and compost to improve its quality. You can apply mulch to the top of the soil to keep the moisture in. The plant prefers heat and enjoys being in the full sun. They can endure shade during midday which will decrease their need for water. 
When planting, ensure the tubers are pointed down. 

Further Care
The plant will do well with a regular feeding of Hadeco Bulb Food.
You might need to provide some of the taller varieties with a stake if they look like they are going to fall over. We recommend that you prune the plants back every now and again as this will promote further growth. You can maximize the size of the flower by reducing the size of the two buds next to it – allowing the central one to grow alone.
If you notice deformed/stunted growth or mottled foliage, the plant has been infected and should be discarded as soon as possible. As the season ends, the leaves of the plant may turn yellow, you can cut and break these leaves away.  If you would like to lift them, do it in July. Cut the stem roughly 5cm above the ground. You can then lift the tuberous root. If they were well fed, there should be an increase in the size and quantity of tubers around the crown. Do not wet the roots during this time.

Tuber condition was very poor

The Tuber condidtion was very poor. The tubers were mostly broken and many of the tubers were rotting. I planted what I could salvage but none have sprouted as I suspected

Hi Tanja,
Thank you for sharing your feedback regarding our imported dahlia tubers. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to provide you with the best quality products.

The condition of the tubers you received is a result of their lengthy storage period after import. Rest assured, they were stored in ideal conditions by reputable growers in Holland. The apparent dryness of the tubers is a natural response during their dormancy period, and once planted, they will rejuvenate, sink roots, and swell up again.

The key components for successful growth are the crown and eyes, which should be completely viable, ensuring optimal performance. We acknowledge that storing the dahlias for an extended period last season affected their condition upon delivery, and we apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.

If, after six weeks from planting, you find the growth to be less vigorous than expected, please don't hesitate to contact us. We are committed to your satisfaction and are prepared to offer a refund or replacement voucher for our online store, according to your preference.

Please note that there is an unavoidable difference in arrival condition between locally grown and imported tubers.

We value your feedback and assistance as we continue to improve this venture. Our trials over the past seasons indicate that it can be successful, and we look forward to working together to achieve great results.

Thank you for choosing our imported dahlia tubers, and we appreciate your support.
