Dahlia - white substance on shoots?

As well as spraying with baking soda, keep the compost on the dry-ish side (i.e. don't overwater at this stage) and don't wet the leaves.

Dahlias

To pIant out dahlias, I would wait until the night temp is consistently around 8-10c. Then it is safe. Yes - pinch out the tops of dahlias when they are about 9" high. This strengthens the main stem and helps with stabilizing the plant in windy conditions, as well as supporting large flowers. It also provides more stems with more flowers!

Does it matter if you place the 2nd layer of bulbs directly over a bulb in the first (i.e. lowest) layer?
