    Frequently Asked Questions

    This is relatively simple. Start by choosing a pot with drainage holes and filling it with a well-draining potting mix. Then place the tuber in the pot with the “eye” facing up and cover it with 2-3 inches of soil. Don’t plant it too deep, otherwise it won’t grow. Water the pot thoroughly, making sure the soil is evenly moist (note: not drenched).

    Place the pot in a bright, warm location, out of direct sunlight. Make sure to keep the soil moist and wait for the first sprouts to appear, usually in 2-4 weeks. Once the shoots are 4-5 inches tall, and the signs of frost are gone, transplant the dahlia into a larger pot or into the garden. Make sure the soil remains consistently moist but not waterlogged.

    For optimal growth, it is recommended to soak your Bantling Dahlia tubers in water before planting, although it is not necessary. This is to help promote growth and ensure that they are hydrated. Soaking the tubers in water for an hour before planting will help rehydrate them and soften the outer layer, allowing the shoots to emerge more easily. Just place them in a bucket with water for one hour and don’t forget them.

    When planting, make sure the tuber is planted with the ‘eye’ facing upwards. After planting, make sure to water the tubers regularly to keep the soil moist, but not waterlogged. With proper care and hydration, your Bantling Dahlia tubers will grow into beautiful, vibrant flowers in no time.

    Yes, Bantling Dahlia tubers do multiply. Over time, the tuber will grow new offsets or ‘daughter’ tubers around the base of the parent tuber. These daughter tubers can be separated and replanted as individual plants.

    However, it is important to wait until the foliage of the parent plant has died back before removing the daughter tubers. As the parent tuber will be providing nourishment to the daughter tubers until that point, and otherwise the whole plant will die down if you remove this too soon. Once separated, the daughter tubers should be cured for a few days and then planted in well-draining soil.

    One Bantling Dahlia tuber can produce several plants, depending on the size and quality of the tuber. Bigger, healthier tubers tend to produce between 4 and 6 healthy plants, whereas smaller ones would give out somewhere between 2 to 3. Yet the amount of Bantling blooms from one tuber can also depend on factors such as water level, type of soil, the care it receives from the gardener, the amount of sun, etc.

    But keep in mind that this is specifically for the Bantling Dahlia. In general, the amount of blooms varies, because the smaller the Dahlia variety, the more blooms it will produce.

    Yes! So you can enjoy your Bantling dahlias the whole summer long. However, it depends on several factors such as the type of soil, light conditions, temperature, and water supply. If the tubers are planted in the right growing season and conditions are favorable, they can produce blooms within the same year.

    However, it is not uncommon for the first year's blooms to be small and less abundant, with larger and more robust blooms appearing in subsequent years. To ensure successful blooming, it is important to plant the tubers at the right depth, provide adequate moisture and nutrition, and protect them from harsh weather conditions.
