Dahlia tuber can be planted outside after frost, or started in pots under glass in early spring. Plant them horizontally approximately 12cm deep, making sure the 'eyes' are uppermost.
Allow enough room between each tuber so the plants can grow and spread to their full size without being over-crowded. When starting growth provide a high-nitrogen liquid each week in June, then a high-potash fertilizer like our organic tomato feed every week from July to September . In mild areas you can leave them in the ground but protect the crown with a generous layer of dry mulch like straw. In colder areas mike the midlands and the north carefully lift and clean the tubers once the first frost have blackened the foliage and allow them to dry naturally indoors. Then place the dry tubers in a shallow tray, just cover with slightly moist potting compost or vermiculite and store in a frost-free place until planting out again.
