Planting Dahlias


Anonymous added on April 16, 2011 | Answered

Can you provide an illustration of how to plant the tubers. I have purchased several dahlias this year for the first time in my garden and want to be sure I am planting them the right direction.

Put the tuber in a hole several inches deep with the “eye” on the tuber facing up. The eye is the point on the shoulder, or crown, of the tuber from which the plant grows. If you are planting a number of dahlias in the same location, they should be separated by about 2 feet to give each plant room to grow.
