Dahlias are great plants for dry and sunny spots in your garden - as drought-tolerant plants they'll cope with hot, dry weather, blooming throughout the summer. Deadheading them will help to prolong the flowering period. Lift and store your dahlia tubers in the autumn, ready to be planted out the following spring. Read our how to grow bulbs guide for more information.
