Dahlias on the coast

Asked March 29, 2019, 7:33 PM EDT

I just moved to South Beach w potted dahlias from Toledo, a warmer climate in summer. It is March 29th. Also I separated two large old clumps of in the dirt dahlias. No buds showing yet. Should I water them in containers. I have them in dry planting mix now.

Thanks for your question. Regardless of your whereabouts, dahlias have the same care requirements. Here is a good OSU publication about them: https://catalog.extension.oregonstate.edu/sites/catalog/files/project/pdf/fs95.pdf Good luck!
