How To Fertilize Dahlias For More Blooms

Dahlia flowers can produce hundreds of blooms each season.  But they need the right nutrients to support those flowers!

Dahlias need a fertilizer high in phosphorous and low in nitrogen.  The phosphorous promotes flower blooms!

Fertilize dahlias when you are preparing the soil for the year.  Give them more fertilizer during the growing season. 

There are MANY different fertilizers available, so make sure to follow the specific instructions on your fertilizer. 

In addition to fertilizer, make sure to deadhead dahlias, plant them in full sun, and give them lots of water!
