Dahlia Fresco Mix

Dahlias are known for their vibrant colours and intricate petal formations, making them a popular choice among flower enthusiasts. They are dependable and beautiful bloomers that are suitable for either containers or a garden border.


Dahlias thrive in well-drained soil and require at least six hours of direct sunlight each day. Choose a location in your garden that receives ample sunlight and has fertile, loamy soil.

Before planting, prepare the soil by adding organic matter such as compost or well-rotted manure. This will improve soil fertility and drainage.

Plant dahlias after the last frost date in your area. Dig a hole that is wide and deep enough to accommodate the plant.  Space the plants according to the recommended distance for the specific variety.

Water the new planting thoroughly and continue to water them regularly throughout the growing season. However, be careful not to overwater, as dahlias are susceptible to rot.

For taller varieties provide support such as stakes or cages to prevent them from toppling over. 

To encourage bushier growth and more blooms, pinch off the top set of leaves when the plants reach a height of 12-18 inches. This will promote lateral branching.

Deadhead spent blooms regularly to encourage continuous blooming. Remove any diseased or damaged foliage to prevent the spread of diseases.

During dry periods, water the plants deeply to ensure they receive adequate moisture. Applying a layer of mulch around the base of the plants will help retain moisture and suppress weed growth.
