Are you dreaming of spring flowers and what to plant such as a Franz Kafka dahlia, named after the great 20th-century writer?
While the story of this popular flower is a nod to a great writer, perhaps you don’t know this story about this writer, shared by Kim Turner, that may make your day.
1) Franz Kafka dahlia grows best in full sun
2) Likes well-drained fertile soil.
3) Don’t forget to lift the tubers after the first frost and store them in a cool place until March for potting, if you have a greenhouse. Or wait until planting in May. Tubers, as we know, have to be taken out of the ground if you want the flowers for the next season. But some flowers are worth the effort.
Nice to know that the author and the flower are both award-winners.
