Disease and pests -
Lots of insects love dahlias. Slugs and sucking insects, most notably red spider and mites can be a real problem. Use appropriate insecticides to treat. Treat any disease early with a general fungicide.
Dahlias are easy to grow. They are heavy feeders so feed regularly with a fertilizer high in nitrogen like Multisol "N". Pinch back stems to promote thicker bushes. Dahlias will die in heavy frost.
