How to take care of Dahlia Akita
After spring frost have disappeared soak your Dahlia Akita tubers in a bucket of tepid water overnight to re-hydrate them before planting out in well-drained garden soil. Position the Dahlia Akita tubers in a sheltered location or stake them for support as they grow so that the wind won't break their long stems. Refrain from watering at planting time as spring provides sufficient rain; they are susceptible to rot from over watering. Water twice weekly in summer. Dahlia Akita tubers bloom late summer and last until first frost. Lift Dahlia Akita tubers before winter sets in. Dig them out carefully with a fork, shake off excess soil and let them dry out completely. Then place them in a well-ventilated frost-free room for winter. Do not pile them on top of each other as they can rot. Replant the following spring after frost.
