    Frequently Asked Questions

    It is not necessary to water Mick's Peppermint dahlia every day. Overwatering can actually harm the plant and cause root rot. Instead, it is important to water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. This may vary depending on factors such as the temperature, humidity, and sunlight in the area where the plant is located.

    Dahlia plants prefer consistently moist but well-draining soil, so be sure to water thoroughly but allow excess water to drain away. In general, it is better to underwater than overwater the plant, so monitor the soil moisture and adjust the watering schedule accordingly.

    To plant Mick's Peppermint dahlias in the ground, start by selecting a location with well-draining soil and full sun exposure. Dig a hole that's twice as wide and deep as the dahlia tuber. Mix some compost or organic fertilizer into the soil and place the tuber in the hole with the "eye" facing upwards. Cover the tuber with soil, leaving about 2 inches of soil above it.

    Water the area thoroughly and keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. As the plant grows, provide support such as a stake or trellis if needed. Fertilize every few weeks and pinch off the side shoots to promote larger blooms.

    The number of Mick's Peppermint Dahlia tubers to plant together depends on several factors, including the size of the planting area, the desired density of plants, and the spacing requirements for the particular variety of Dahlia. Generally, Mick’s Peppermint dahlia tubers should be planted about 24 inches apart and 4-5 inches deep.

    For Mick's Peppermint Dahlia, which is a medium-sized variety, it is recommended to plant 3-5 tubers together in a group. This spacing allows the plants to grow and spread without crowding each other and ensures that they have adequate space for their roots to develop. But again, the answer to this question is completely dependent on the size of the pot, container, planting area or landscape.

    The best fertilizer for Mick's Peppermint dahlias would be a mixed fertilizer with (almost) equal parts nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, such as a 5-10-10 or 10-20-20 fertilizer (be gentle with the Nitrogen). Nitrogen will encourage lush green foliage, phosphorus will support healthy root development, and potassium will aid in flower production.

    It's important to fertilize dahlias regularly throughout the growing season, starting with a slow-release fertilizer at planting and then following up with liquid fertilizers every 2-4 weeks. Additionally, incorporating organic matter, such as compost or aged manure, into the soil can provide additional nutrients and improve soil structure for healthier plant growth.
