 Free Dahlia Care Tips from Dahlia Acres

Dahlia flowers come in a variety of colors and shapes. They are beautiful blooms but do require more care than other flower types. We want to share our dahlia care and handling tips.

  • Dahlias will hydrate better in warm water. Make sure your vase is clean and filled with at least 3”-4” of warm water.
  • Carefully separate the stems and remove any lower foliage that would fall below the water line.
  • Give each stem a clean diagonal cut. Cut at least 1” off each stem and quickly place in water.
  • Recut the stems and change the water daily. This will prevent bacteria from forming and clogging the stems.
  • Keep dahlias in a cool area, away from direct sunlight.

Dahlia Acres also sells to local florists and at farmer’s markets in Grand Haven, Muskegon, South Haven and Spring Lake. They are open to the public Monday-Friday from 9:00am – 8:00pm, starting August 1, 2017 through mid-October, 2017. Please call ahead to make an appointment by calling Marcy at 616-834-2672 or emailing dahliaacres15@gmail.com. For additional details, you can visit their website at dahliaacresfarm.com.
