The Q&A Archives: Starting Dahlia From Seed

Question: I was wondering if you could tell me when to start dahlia seeds?

Answer: Dahlias are quite easy to grow from seed. If you wish to start them indoors, sow them 8-10 weeks before the last frost date. Sow the seed in individual pots instead of flats and keep them at 65-70 degrees F. They germinate anywhere from 5 to 20 days. When seeding outdoors, sow them 1-2 weeks before the last frost date. <br><br>It's exciting to be preparing for seed-starting. For those of us in northern climes, it's the closest we're going to get to this summer's garden for a couple of months yet!
