Frequently Asked Questions

Here are the steps to plant Maki dahlias:

• Choose a planting site that receives full sun and has well-draining soil.
• Prepare the soil by adding compost or well-rotted manure and mixing it thoroughly.
• Plant the dahlia tubers in holes that are 4-5 inches deep and 24 inches apart.
• Cover the tubers with soil and water thoroughly.
• As the dahlias grow, provide support with stakes to
prevent them from falling over.
• Water the dahlias regularly, ensuring that the soil remains evenly moist but not waterlogged.
• Fertilize the dahlias once a month with a balanced fertilizer.
• Pinch off the first set of flower buds to encourage bushier growth and more blooms.

With proper care, Maki dahlias will produce beautiful, colorful flowers throughout the growing season.

Soaking Maki dahlias before planting can help them germinate faster and promote healthier growth. Soaking is a process of allowing the tubers to absorb water before planting. This process can help soften the tuber, making it easier for roots to grow and the plant to establish itself.

To soak Maki dahlias, place them in a container of lukewarm water for about 2 hours before planting. Make sure to only soak the tubers and avoid getting the stem or leaves wet, as this can cause rotting.

While soaking is not strictly necessary for planting Maki dahlias, it can increase the likelihood of successful growth and yield a more vibrant and healthy plant.

If you don't deadhead Maki dahlias, the plant will divert its energy into producing seeds instead of growing new blooms. Deadheading, which involves removing spent flowers, promotes the growth of more flowers by encouraging the plant to produce new buds.

If the spent flowers are not removed, the plant will eventually stop producing new blooms and may even start to wither and die. Deadheading also helps to keep the plant looking tidy and attractive, as spent flowers can be unsightly. So, to keep your Maki dahlias healthy and blooming, it is important to deadhead them regularly throughout the growing season.

Maki dahlias require a balanced fertilizer that contains equal amounts of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. A 5-10-10 or 10-20-20 fertilizer is recommended. Nitrogen helps with vegetative growth, phosphorus promotes root development, and potassium aids in overall plant health and disease resistance.

It's important to avoid high-nitrogen fertilizers, as they can lead to excessive foliage growth at the expense of flower production. Apply fertilizer every 2-4 weeks during the growing season, starting when the plants are about 6 inches tall. Water the plants thoroughly before and after applying fertilizer to prevent burning the roots.
