How to take care of Dahlia Vuurvogel x 3
After spring frost have disappeared soak your Dahlia Vuurvogel tubers in a bucket of tepid water overnight to re-hydrate them before planting out in well-drained garden soil. Position the Dahlia Vuurvogel 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 Vuurvogel tubers bloom late summer and last until first frost. Lift Dahlia Vuurvogel 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.
Please soak them in a bowl or bucket of tepid water for the night to rehydrate them. Refrain from watering at planting time because springtime provides sufficient rain to fulfil the tubers needs until they appear above the ground. Dahlias are susceptible to rot and too much water will cause them to rot. For best results keep the soil on the dry side rather than too wet. Once they are established, a deep soaking 2 -3 times a week during summer will suffice.
