We have always had better luck planting Dahlia seeds than store bought tubers. It's best to start these early in winter in 4" pots about 1-2 months before your last frost in the spring, but don't let them get root bound in the pot as this will stunt growth. We do sneak them into our garden early in zone 7 here in March, but will cover them if we get a frost as the earlier you can get them in the ground the more fully double flowers they will produce. They dislike soggy conditions so make sure your garden bed is raised and not in a low spot in your garden area. You can also direct seed them in spring after your last frost but they will show up much later in early summer and you will get mostly semi-double flowers.

At the end of the growing season you can let the flower heads dry on the stems and collect seeds or dig up the tubers and store them over winter. If you use the tubers next spring you will also get more fully double flowers.

There are lot's of videos on line about Dahlia tubers but we dig them up in late fall and don't wash them. We let them fully dry and store them, with the dirt on them, in 5 gallon buckets that are covered with a towel in our garage. Don't let them freeze or they will die. In winter we then start these tubers in pots so they can get an early start, but we also start a few by seed.
