You can plant your dahlias about the last week of May, after the soil has warmed. In the fall, after a hard frost has killed back the tops, dig the tubers to store over the winter months. Dahlias respond well to a bloom booster fertilizer. Look for a 5-10-10 or a 10-20-20 fertilizer. Enjoy your dahlias!
