How to take care of Dahlia Bishop of Auckland Tuber size I
After spring frost have disappeared soak your Dahlia Bishop of Auckland Tuber size I tubers in a bucket of tepid water overnight to re-hydrate them before planting out in well-drained garden soil. Position the Dahlia Bishop of Auckland Tuber size I 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 Bishop of Auckland Tuber size I tubers bloom late summer and last until first frost. Lift Dahlia Bishop of Auckland Tuber size I 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.
