    Frequently Asked Questions

    The answer depends on whether you’re planning to plant the dahlias in your garden in full ground or in pots and containers. Besides that, it is a personal choice how many Caribbean Fantasy dahlias you want. Do you like simplicity, or do you like the showy effect?

    To make a nice display in your garden, we suggest keeping in mind that you need to:
    • plant smaller Dahlia tubers approximately 15-18 inches apart from each other
    • larger Dahlia varieties 22-26 inches apart

    For Caribbean Fantasy we recommend a planting distance of 18 inches. Now you know how far apart you should plant the dahlia tubers, you can measure your garden and calculate how many Caribbean Fantasy Dahlia tubers you need.

    For pots and containers, you’ll need a 12-14 inch pot for one Caribbean Fantasy dahlia tuber. So if you want more dahlias in one pot, then use a bigger pot. And it’s up to you if you want one dahlia per pot, or if you want multiple dahlias per pot.

    Caribbean Fantasy dahlias are kind of picky as regards their potting soil. They prefer well-drained, loosened soil with nutrients because they don’t like wet feet otherwise they will rot. Try not to use soils with clay or anything that holds too much moisture, preferably sandier soil because this type of soil is more well-drained. If clay soil is all you have, then mix it with some sand or peat moss.

    In addition to potting soil, it’s also much appreciated if you fertilize your Caribbean Fantasy dahlias every 2-4 weeks. The best feed for Caribbean Fantasy Dahlias is a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer with equal parts of phosphorus, potassium and nitrogen, but go slow with the nitrogen (NPK).

    Yes, yes, yes! We can’t emphasize this enough. Caribbean Fantasy dahlia tubers need full sun to thrive. Dahlias are sun-loving plants and require at least six hours of direct sunlight per day. They need full sun to produce abundant blooms and maintain healthy foliage. Without enough sunlight, dahlias may become leggy and weak, and the flowers may be smaller and fewer in number.

    If you live in an area with hot summers, your dahlias may benefit from partial shade during the hottest part of the day. However, it's essential to ensure they still receive enough sunlight to promote healthy growth and blooming.

    Caribbean Fantasy is a large Dahlia with big blooms and needs support during the growing season. If you do not support them, they will fall over. Caribbean Fantasy dahlias can be supported using a variety of methods, depending on personal preference and the specific needs of the plant.

    One common method is staking, which involves inserting a sturdy stake next to the plant and tying the stem to the stake with a soft material such as twine or plant ties. Another option is using a trellis, which can provide support for multiple plants and help prevent them from toppling over.

    It is also important to deadhead spent blooms regularly to encourage new growth and maintain the plant's shape.
