Growing & Maintenance Tips for Dahlia 'Creme de Cassis'

Fertilize dahlias monthly with a water-soluble, organic fertilizer that is formulated for flowers. Avoid using a high-nitrogen fertilizer, or you'll get lots of green growth with little flowering. Mulch with straw or shredded bark to keep weeds to a minimum and retain moisture. Water regularly, especially during dry periods. Remove old blossoms to encourage more branching and flower production.
