    How to care for Fleurel?

    • To plant your Dahlia tuber Fleurel, simply find a sunny spot in your garden with well-draining soil. 
    • Plant the tuber with the "eye" facing up, about 4-5 inches deep, and water well. 
    • Once the plant has sprouted and grown a few inches, you can start to fertilize it every 4-6 weeks. 
    • Be sure to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. 
    • Deadhead the flowers regularly to encourage continuous blooming.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    To keep Fleurel dahlias blooming, follow these tips:

    • Plant in full sun: dahlias need at least six hours of direct sunlight each day to bloom their best. Choose a location that gets full sun.
    • Water regularly: dahlias need consistent moisture to bloom well. Water deeply once or twice a week, depending on weather conditions.
    • Fertilize regularly: use a balanced fertilizer, such as a 5-10-10 or 10-20-20, every four to six weeks during the growing season. Follow the instructions on the fertilizer package.
    • Deadhead regularly: remove spent flowers to encourage the plant to produce more blooms.
    • Support the plants: Fleurel dahlias can grow tall and heavy, so use stakes to keep them upright.
    • Mulch around the plants: a layer of mulch around the base of the plants can help retain moisture and keep the soil cool.

    Fleurel dahlias require a balanced fertilizer with a higher phosphorus content to promote flower production. A fertilizer with an N-P-K ratio of 5-10-10 or 10-20-20 is ideal for these plants. The N-P-K ratio indicates the percentage of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K) in the fertilizer, respectively.

    A balanced fertilizer ensures that the plant gets all the necessary nutrients it needs to grow and bloom properly. It is also essential to follow the manufacturer's instructions and apply the fertilizer at the recommended rate, as overfertilization can damage the plant and lead to excessive foliage growth at the expense of flower production. Fertilize them right after you plant them and then every 2-4 weeks.

    Yes, cutting Fleurel dahlias encourages more flowers. This is because cutting off the spent blooms, also known as deadheading, redirects the plant's energy to the tuber to create more blooms. Deadheading also helps to prevent the plant from putting energy into producing seeds, which can lead to a decrease in flower production.

    Therefore, cutting off the spent blooms on Fleurel dahlias regularly can help to promote continuous blooming throughout the growing season. It's important to cut the blooms back to a leaf node to prevent damaging the stem and encourage the growth of new shoots.

    Also, we grow dahlias for their colorful looks, not for their spent blooms. Fleurel just looks healthier and more colorful if you cut off the spent blooms.

    Fleurel dahlias do not typically multiply on their own. They can be propagated by dividing the root clumps in the spring or fall, or by taking cuttings from the shoots in late spring or early summer.

    Dahlias are grown from tubers, which are swollen underground stems that store energy for the plant. In the fall, after the foliage has died back, the tubers can be dug up, divided, and replanted in the spring.

    Therefore, dividing the tubers is the most common and reliable way to multiply dahlias and ensure consistent plant characteristics.
