Plant Dahlias in full sun, give them plenty of water and fertilizer. The “trick” with dahlias is to never allow them to stop growing. If the wood hardens they will not bloom.

Dahlias can be used as a specimen plant, as a hedge, as a border, or as a background plant because of the numerous varieties and types.
