    Frequently Asked Questions

    When planting Witteman’s Best Dahlia tubers, it's advisable to space them about 12 to 18 inches apart. The actual number of tubers to plant together would depend on the size of the area or container you're using. For a small garden or container, start with planting one tuber per pot or square foot. For a larger area, consider clustering 3 to 5 tubers together to create a visually appealing display while allowing each plant enough space to thrive and avoid overcrowding.

    Witteman’s Best Dahlia tubers do not require soaking before planting unless they’re very dried out. Unlike some other tuber varieties, Dahlias do not typically benefit from pre-soaking. However, to encourage healthy growth, ensure the bulbs are planted in well-draining soil and watered appropriately after planting. Soaking can potentially cause the bulbs to rot, so it's best to plant them directly into the soil according to the planting instructions.

    Witteman’s Best Dahlia tubers can be successfully grown in pots and containers. Choose a container with good drainage and fill it with a well-draining potting mix. Plant the tubers about 4 to 6 inches deep, ensuring they're not overcrowded. Provide regular watering and adequate sunlight for optimal growth. Container gardening offers flexibility in placement and allows you to enjoy these beautiful flowers on patios, balconies, or smaller spaces.

    Dahlias contain compounds that, if ingested by pets, can cause mild gastrointestinal upset, including vomiting and diarrhea. While not highly toxic, it's best to keep pets away from these plants. If you suspect your pet has ingested any part of the dahlia plant and they show concerning symptoms, contact your veterinarian for guidance. As a precaution, consider planting them in areas less accessible to pets or placing barriers around the plants to prevent accidental ingestion.
