Care: Slugs & snails love the young growth of Dahlia, be sure to use suitable pest control to keep their nibbles at bay! Taller varieties of Dahlia may need a little support later in the season to keep them upright. Keep your Dahlia blooming well by feeding regularly in the summer season, use a high phosphate feed such as a tomato food for better results. Dead head Dahlia flowers to encourage more blooms to follow.
