The answer is yes. Dahlias grow quite well in pots, if keeping a few necessities in mind. Swedish Elle Decoration blogger, Elin Lannsjö, shows us the way to transform her small cottage garden into a lush, flourishing oasis with help from terracotta pots. The Danish organic flower farmer, Rikke Lentz, provides us with her best tips on how to make your Dahlias thrive and perform their utmost.
Whether you do not have access to a regular plot of land, live in a limited space, or just can’t wait till the frosty nights are out of sight and the warmer days arrive; the dream of a garden is within reach by growing plants, vegetables, and flowers in pots.
A returning darling amongst the garden’s ornamental inhabitants is the much-loved Dahlia flowers – the generous tuberous perennials that bloom far past the peak summer and keep rewarding us with flowers, as long as we keep picking them.
