Dahlia bulb planting time

Asked March 14, 2013, 4:12 PM EDT

I purchased "Bishop of Llandaff" and "Serkan" dahlia bulbs from Portland Nursery last weekend. Can I plant them now or what do you think optimal planting time would be for them? I live in Vancouver, WA

Thank you,

Clark County Washington

April or may is the best planting time. However you could plant them now but they will take a long time to come up. I usually mark the spot where i plant so that i will not mess up the area in the future by planting over it or weeding them out
