Care Guide

Good pest and disease resistance

Dahlias can have issues with Slugs, Aphids Capsid Bugs, Earwigs and Powdery Mildew. to defend against the bacterial infections you try to maintain good garden hygiene. Space the plants out adequately to allow for good air circulation so it does not become to crowded and humid within the leaves. For Slugs and Snails, it is important to keep the area around the plant debris free and as dry as possible, especially at night as slugs and snails love damp conditions. You can use barriers such as egg shells or copper wire to surround the plant to prevent slugs and snails reaching the leaves. For Aphids, check the leaves regularly for any possible infestation. If you see some, try to pick the bugs off with your hands and spray the infected area with some soapy water. You can also plant a companion plant nearby, such as Marigolds, which will attract predatory insects such as ladybirds that will eat the aphids.MORE

Water often

Water well especially during hot and dry periods. It is best to water Dahlias once a week deeply. However, if the plant looks distressed during prolonged hot periods you may want to water more often.MORE

Dahlias should be planted somewhere they receive around 6-8 hours of direct sunlight every day.MORE

Feed regularly

Apply a general purpose feed at the planting time. Then, from July to September feed every two weeks with a high-potash liquid feed such as tomato feed.MORE
