Plant your dahlia tubers in spring. Dahlia 'Crazy Love' is sensitive to frost, so plant in pots and planters only after any chance of a late frost has gone.
A good time to plant your dahlias in the ground would be in spring between late April and mid-May. Dahlia 'Crazy Love' is sensitive to frost, so beware of late night frosts. Dig a large planting hole, loosen the soil and fill the hole with fertile soil. Carefully place the tubers into the hole spaced about 50 cm from each other, cover the Dahlia 'Crazy Love' with 3-5 cm of soil. Press the soil gently down and water immediately. Dahlias will bloom best in complete sunshine.
Dahlia 'Crazy Love' is great in the border
Dahlia 'Crazy Love' is a favourite of many gardeners. These striking dahlias are real eye-catchers in the border! A wonderful display if you combine them with the beautiful Abyssinian gladiolus (Gladiolus Callianthus 'Murielae') and white flame flower (Phlox 'White Admiral').
Fertilise your Dahlia 'Crazy Love' on a monthly basis throughout the flowering period until the first frost. Keep deadheading to prolong flowering. Keep the soil moist during the flowering season. This dahlia is fairly tall so it may be necessary to provide a support for its flower stems.
Keeping dahlia's over the winter
Dahlia tubers can easily be overwintered. If you want to do this, dig up the plants before the first frosts and cut all stems back to 15 cm above the tuber. Label your dahlias to remind yourself for next year. Shake off excess soil from the dahlia tubers and place in a box with peat dust or sharp sand.
Store the dahlia tubers in a frost-free area such as a garden shed or greenhouse. Next spring you can plant the dahlia tubers again and you will be rewarded with their wonderful flowers once more.
If you want your plants to flower earlier you can 'force' them. Place the dahlia 'Crazy Love' tuber(s) in a shallow tray in moist compost at 15-20˚ C from the start of April. When shoots begin to appear, pot them into potting compost. Let the dahlias get acclimatised to the outside temperature in early May and from mid-May onwards the dahlias can be planted outdoors in either your garden or in pots.
