Dahlias really don't bloom

By Almanac Staff

Dahlias really don't bloom well indoors. You didn't say where you live, but if you live in a cold climate, you have to lift the tubers in the fall and store inside through the winter. When you bring inside, dust them with powdered sulfur. Spray with Orthene, a systemic insecticide, as new growth begins next season. That will reduce the bug population.
