The blooms on the Dinner Plate Dahlias can be intimidating at the garden centers; trust me! Every year I would admire them when I worked at a garden center thinking I could never grow that! In this post, I show how easy it is to grow these beautiful plants and how to overcome that fear. This post is all about Planting Dahlias in the Summer Landscape.
Planting The Dahlia Tubers
There are many different ways to plant up dahlia tubers. I have planted dahlias successfully in containers to add to the landscape. In this post, I share what has worked for me in my hardiness zone 5b garden. If you have questions or concerns please be sure to leave me a message on my contact page because I am happy to help. One thing to keep in mind when planting the dahlias is to not be afraid to try new locations in the garden. Be sure to keep an eye on the plant to see if it is getting too much water or not enough. Be prepared to enjoy the blooms later in the summer – they do take a few months of warm weather to produce a bloom.
Below are a few photos of my favorite dahlias that I grow. I am not as big as Dahlia Hill in Michigan but that would be my ultimate dream garden someday!
Party With the Dahlia
