Dahlia's are a multi purpose flower. They can be grown
outdoors in containers or beds... or kept indoors in a sunny
location as a flowering house plant.
Plant Dahlias Dahlletta Mix in full sun to partial shade in fertile well drained
soil. Dahlias are heavy feeders and benefit greatly from frequent
light fertilizing. Feed Dahlia's weekly with a balanced liquid plant food. From spring to early summer use a high nitrogen feed... and
from mid summer to first frost use a high potassium food. Remove
spent flowers to promote new flower growth.
Dahlias can be moved
indoors before first frost to a sun room or sunny window that
receives 6 hours of direct sunshine.
Dahlia flowers are
excellent for cutting, and attracting butterflies.
