Dahlia Planting 大理花球根包種植
Dahlia is one of my favorite flowering bulbs! It is so easy to grow them and propagate them (from seeds, young shoots and divide the tuberous roots). There are so many flower colors to pick from at a good price! Long blooming seasons and they are good for cut flowers!
In end of fall I will cut my Dahlias down to remove anything above ground and dig the root out for indoor storage through winter. I have been saving the roots many years. I often divide the roots in early spring then give some away to my clients and friends.
Bees and butterflies love them, I haven’t noticed humming birds go to them though. The flowering season is from mid/late spring to frost! Great value!
Here are some pictures that I took in my garden and the new bulbs that I have planted in big pots.
大理花是我喜愛的球根花卉之一,因為它容易栽種和繁殖(種子,新芽扦插和球根分株). 開花期很長又花色繁多. 而且價格低又可當切花花材.
我種的大理花常常一年比一年多,都是在初春球根分株得來,有多的就送給客戶或朋友. 秋末要在霜降前去掉土表以上部份挖出球根貯存室內過冬. 它的超長開花期從春末到霜降,真是物超所值的花!
