The Q&A Archives: Growing dahlias

Question: If I plant these Unwin dahlia tubers I bought at Home Depot, will they make it thru the hot Atlanta, Georgia summer and survive? ( I purchased them in Oregon and know they bloom beautifully in Oregon) Should they be planted in shade or direct sun? How far apart should they be planted and when?

Answer: Donna,

Dahlia tubers can survive your summers if provided moist but not soggy wet soil. I would choose a morning sun afternoon shade location and plant them about 2 feet apart.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
