    Frequently Asked Questions

    Sun! American Dream dahlias in general like the sun, lots of it. Furthermore, you need to plant them correctly. Firstly, you need proper soil preparation: dahlias prefer well-draining, fertile soil that is slightly acidic. Before planting, amend the soil with compost, peat moss, or other organic matter to improve its quality. Then, plant the American Dream dahlia tubers about 3-4 inches deep in the soil, with the “eye” facing upward. Cover the tubers with a little bit of soil, leaving only the tip exposed.

    They need consistent watering to prevent the tubers from drying out. Water the plants deeply, about once a week. Or even more often during hot or dry weather. American Dream dahlias require full sun exposure, at least 6 hours a day, to grow and bloom well.

    American Dream dahlias are able to withstand winter temperatures in USDA zones 7-10, without being harmed. Nevertheless, leaving the dahlia tubers in the ground during cold seasons is not a good idea as they are not frost resistant. The cold weather can ruin or destroy the tubers and they will be unable to regrow when spring arrives.

    In colder climates, it is advisable to dig up the dahlia tubers and keep them in a dry, cool area during the winter. This will help defend them from the cold and enable them to sprout again when temperatures increase.

    To ensure a successful growing season, it is important to plant the tubers at the right time. The best month to plant American Dream dahlia tubers is between late April and early June, when the soil has warmed up to at least 60°F and the risk of frost has passed.

    By planting the American Dream dahlia tubers in the right month and providing the right conditions, gardeners can enjoy a long and abundant growing season. The dahlias will bloom from mid-summer until the first frost, providing an eye-catching display of bold, bright colors.

    Maintaining an adequate level of hydration for your American Dream dahlia tubers is essential. Too much water can lead to rot, while not enough can cause the plants to wilt. To avoid any issues, it is suggested that they be watered every other day. This will give them a sufficient amount of moisture to remain in good condition without becoming overly saturated.

    It is important to remember that the frequency of watering may vary depending on the climate and weather conditions in your area. In hot and dry conditions, you may need to water your American Dream dahlia tubers more frequently, while in cooler and damp conditions, you may need to water them less frequently. It is best to keep an eye on your plants and adjust the watering schedule accordingly.

    American Dream dahlias are heavy feeders and benefit from a balanced fertilizer such as 10-10-10. Before planting, mix the fertilizer into the soil or amend it with compost. After planting, apply fertilizer every 2-4 weeks, following the instructions on the package.

    Make sure to water the dahlias thoroughly after applying the fertilizer. Dahlias need constant moisture for optimal growth, so keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Additionally, adding a layer of organic mulch around the base of the plants can help retain moisture and provide additional nutrients. To promote vigorous blooms, apply a high-phosphorus fertilizer, such as 5-10-5, two weeks before the dahlias are expected to flower.
