    Frequently Asked Questions

    Gitt's Perfection dahlias thrive best in locations with full sun exposure for at least six hours per day, preferably facing the South. When planting Gitt's Perfection dahlias, it is important to choose a spot that is protected from strong winds, as their tall stems may snap under pressure.

    They prefer well-draining soil that is enriched with organic matter and has a pH between 6.0 and 7.0. Additionally, these dahlias should be spaced at least 24 inches apart to allow for adequate air circulation and to prevent overcrowding. Overall, a sunny and sheltered spot with well-draining soil and adequate spacing is ideal for planting Gitt's Perfection dahlias.

    Gitt’s Perfection can grow up to a height of 3-4 feet tall with blooms up to 10 inches in diameter. To grow these dahlias successfully, follow these tips:

    The key to growing Gitt’s Perfection dahlias is to provide them with the right growing conditions. They thrive in warmer climates and they require full sun to partial shade (at least 6 hours of sunlight, preferably facing south or west). Gitt’s Perfection dahlias are not very picky on soil, but use well-drained soil with good drainage and fertilizer.

    Plant tubers in the spring, after the danger of frost has passed, and keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.

    Deadhead regularly to encourage more blooms and pinch back the tips of the plants to encourage bushier growth. Additionally, staking or providing support for the tall stems will help prevent them from flopping over.

    To winterize Gitt's Perfection dahlias, first, wait until the first frost when the foliage has died down. Cut the stems to about 6 inches and gently lift the tubers from the soil using a garden fork. Brush off the soil, let them air dry and store them in a cool, dry, and dark location like a basement or garage.

    Ideally, the temperature should be between 35-50°F with moderate humidity. Check on the tubers occasionally to ensure they remain firm and healthy. In the spring, replant them after the last frost when the soil has warmed up.

    Gitt's Perfection dahlias are a type of dahlia that prefer warm temperatures and cannot tolerate frost. As a general rule of thumb, temperatures below 50°F (10°C) are considered too cold for Gitt's Perfection dahlias. The ideal soil temperature is 60-65°F.

    When the temperature drops below this threshold, the plants may start to show signs of stress, such as wilting, yellowing leaves, or stunted growth. To protect your Gitt's Perfection dahlias from cold temperatures, it's important to plant them after the last frost date in your area and provide them with proper insulation during the colder months, such as covering them with blankets or moving them indoors.
