Dahlias are now flowering their little hearts out here. How are your Dahlias going? Here are some suggestions if you have had good rain and your soil drains well and yet they aren’t flowering as well as you hoped.
Remember Dahlias really do their best as Autumn begins ( this is peak flowering time as the sun has lost its bite), they prefer sun in the morning and protection from the afternoon sun. Don’t worry if they aren’t in that position. You can fix this with some strategically placed shadecloth. They will still flower under shadecloth.
Once they do begin flowering well I would recommend deadheading regularly. Our friends the bees really like well opened Dahlias so I leave as long as I can.
