Dahlia

Dahlia

These plants, originating from South America, have become essential to beautify your garden.

They are easy to grow and multiply very easily. Many varieties offer as many different shapes, colors and sizes as you will necessarily find ones that suit you.

My favorite: the dahlia cactus light obscure that I find simply majestic.

Traditional plantation: The bulbs (tuberous roots) have to be planted in the ground from the end of April to mid-May, 5 to 10 centimeters deep. You can add an organic fertilizer and also provide a tutor for the highest varieties. Ensure that the plants have a space from 30 to 90 centimeters (depending on the variety) between each other.

Maintenance: In autumn, if you live in an area with rather cold winters, from the first frost, dig out the tubers and cut the stems back to 15 cm. After labeling them, place them in a crate in a cool, ventilated room. You can then replant them the following spring.
In mild winter regions, strains may be left in place, but protected by mulch.
