    Frequently Asked Questions

    A Dinnerplate Dahlia is a type of dahlia that produces large, show-stopping flowers that can reach up to 10 inches in diameter. These flowers come in a wide variety of colors, ranging from vibrant pinks and oranges to soft pastels and elegant whites.

    Dinnerplate Dahlias are a popular choice among gardeners who want to add a bold, colorful statement to their garden beds or containers. They typically bloom in the summer and fall, and their beautiful flowers can last for weeks if properly cared for. These plants require full sun and well-draining soil to thrive, and they can be grown in garden beds, containers, or even as cut flowers for floral arrangements.

    Dinnerplate Dahlia tubers should be planted in the spring, after the last frost. This is usually around late April or early May, depending on your location. Planting too early can cause the tubers to rot, while planting too late can delay their growth and blooming.

    It's important to wait until the soil has warmed up and the risk of frost has passed before planting your tubers. Once planted, they will begin to grow and bloom throughout the summer and fall, providing a beautiful addition to your garden.

    Dinnerplate Dahlia tubers should be planted about 6 inches deep, with the eye of the tuber facing upwards. The eye is the small, pointed part of the bulb where new growth will emerge.

    Planting the tuber too shallow can result in weak growth or damage from frost, while planting too deep can delay the plant's growth and blooming. Make sure to cover the tuber with soil after planting and water thoroughly to help it establish roots in its new location.

    Dinnerplate Dahlia tubers should be planted about 18 inches apart to allow for proper growth and spacing. This spacing will help to ensure that each plant has enough room to grow and reach its full potential.

    Planting too close together can result in overcrowding and competition for resources, which can lead to weak growth or disease. If planting in rows, make sure to space the rows at least 2-3 feet apart to allow for easy access and maintenance.

    Dinnerplate Dahlias require full sun to grow and bloom properly, which means they need at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. If they do not receive enough sunlight, they may not bloom as well, or their stems may become weak and floppy.

    So, it's best to plant them in a spot that receives full sun throughout the day. However, if you live in a region with very hot summers, you may want to provide some afternoon shade to prevent the blooms from getting scorched.
