Growing Info
How to Plant Dig a hole about 8-12" deep and mix in compost if you have it. For planting the clump whole, the tuber clump should be fully covered in dirt, but the stem should be sticking out. For planting a single tuber, lay the tuber on its side horizontally 2-4" deep. Cover with soil and gently compress to make your dahlias nice and snug. Mark the spot with support (a stake or tomato trellis works well) for the big blooms to come. Tubers are prone to rot, so only water if the soil is very dry, otherwise leave it be until it starts to grow.
Where to Plant Find a place that gets mostly sun, and space the tubers about 12" apart
When to Plant Late spring once the soil has warmed up
When to Expect Blooms Late summer until your first hard frost
Care Instructions Water regularly once they start to sprout, and then give them regular water. Pick the flowers regularly to encourage more blooms. They are sensitive to frost, so make sure to wait until any threat of frost has passed before planting outside
Extra Credit When the plant is about 12" tall you can pinch it back, (which is to clip off the first main middle bud), so that the plant is encouraged to be bushier and more full of blooms as it matures. After your first frost, you can dig up your tubers and store them someplace cool and dark to replant the following spring. Our plant care page has detailed instructions on Dahlia digging, dividing, and storing

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • What varieties are included in this bundle ?

    This bundle includes one tuber each of: Totally Tangerine, Polka, Crème de Cognac, Crème de Cassis, Café au Lait

  • I'm not clear on how you can plant the whole clump? I thought individual dahlias need to be planted 12 inches apart??? So one clump is actually how many plants? Still not clear. Thanks

    If you leave the clump intact you can plant it as you would one tuber, and it will be an extra-vigerous plant! Dividing the clump into multiple plantings is totally optional!

  • I ordered my slumber party bulbs over a month, I forgot when you were mailing out?

    Dahlias are starting to ship this week (third week of April). They like to be planted once the ground is quite warm, late in the spring.

  • Is a clump of tubers more than just one plant? I just ordered slumber party.

    The Slumber Party includes different tuber clumps for each variety, and each tuber clump can either be planted all together, or you can divide it in half or thirds to plant separately! We have dividing instructions on our plant care page!

  • How many tubers come in this pack and what’s their ID?

    This includes 5 full clumps of tubers, individually packaged, the varieties are: Totally Tangerine, Polka, Crème de Cognac, Crème de Cassis, Café au Lait
