Dahlia plants grow and bloom best in full sun. Dahlias tolerate most soil types. but prefer a sandy. well drained. slightly acidic soil with a pH of 6.2- 6.5. If your soil is heavy or clay. adding sand and peat moss will help to lighten it. Water established Dahlias thoroughly and deeply once a week. Water more frequently if it's very hot. Dahlias in bud or bloom are heavy feeders. so you should begin feeding them monthly. beginning a month before they begin to set buds using a water soluble. 'bloom' type fertilizer.
