How to grow and care for Dahlias

Look for a fertilizer that is high in potassium (K) and phosphorus (P) but low in nitrogen (N). Potassium and phosphorus encourage bud

growth and flowering. to prevent lush bushes with few blooms. Check your NPK (nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium) levels in your fertilizer

before you buy. Expert growers recommend formulas like 5-10-10, 10-20-20 or even 0-0-10. Fertilizing dahlias just a couple of times can

make a big difference to the flower crop. Add at planting and no more than once a month before flowering begins.
