    Frequently Asked Questions

    The American Dream dahlia tuber can be planted in either a pot or in the ground, depending on the space available and personal preference. If planted in a pot, make sure it's big enough and has good drainage, as dahlias need plenty of room for their roots to grow and good drainage to prevent root rot.

    On the other hand, planting in the ground allows the tuber to spread its roots more freely and makes it easier to water and fertilize. Ultimately, the choice between pot or ground planting will depend on the growing conditions, as well as the gardener's goals for their American Sun dahlia.

    American Dream dahlia tubers are not hard to grow if you follow the proper steps. They need well-drained soil and full sun, with regular watering and fertilization. You should plant them in the spring after the last frost, at a depth of about 3-4 inches. Dahlias are heavy feeders, so you should add compost or organic matter to the soil before planting. You may also need to stake the plants as they grow to prevent them from falling over.

    Pests and diseases can be a problem, so it's important to keep an eye out for any signs of trouble and treat them promptly. With proper care, American Dream dahlia tubers should provide you with a beautiful display of blooms all summer long. Please contact us if you have any questions about American Sun Dahlias!

    It's possible that your American Sun Dahlias are not flowering due to several factors. First, they may not be getting enough sunlight and must be placed in an area with at least 6 hours of direct sunshine daily. Additionally, too much fertilizer or incorrect soil pH can stop the blooms from showing up. Make sure you use a soil mix that drains well with a pH of between 6.0 and 7.0 and fertilize carefully.

    Thirdly, not removing dead blooms can cause the plant to concentrate its energy on producing foliage rather than flowers. Fourth, pressure caused by fluctuations in temperature or water deprivation can result in no flowers appearing. Make sure your plants stay in a steady environment and are watered frequently but not excessively.

    Lastly, Dahlias are not hardy, so don't plant your dahlias too early in spring and please dig them up at the end of the blooming time.

    If you don't pinch American Sun Dahlias, the plants will grow taller and leggier. The flowers will not be as abundant or as large as they would be if pinched. The plants will also be more susceptible to lodging or breaking due to the weight of the flowers and the height of the plant.

    Additionally, the plant's energy will be focused on growing taller rather than producing more flowers. The plant will not be as full and will have fewer flowers, making it less attractive in the garden. To get the best results, it's important to pinch American Sun Dahlias to encourage branching, promote bushier growth, and produce more flowers.

    In areas with mild winters, American Sun Dahlias can be left in the ground. To safeguard them from extreme cold and frost, cut their stems to the base before the first frost and mulch their crowns. Furthermore, adding a layer of soil or leaves will provide extra security.

    For regions with temperatures that dip below freezing, it is important to dig up the American Sun tubers and store them in a cool, dark spot that is free of moisture. To ensure the tubers will survive, they must be dry and free from any type of decay or rot prior to being put away. If left in the ground, they may become rotten and not make it.
