Is it too late for me to plant dahlias?

burry(7 Maryland)June 30, 2013

For the first time I am having great luck with dahlias this year....I think because I got them in the ground early. Is it too late for me to plant more? How long would it typically take tubers to flower?

Also do deer eat dahlias? I think they have in years past, but again no problem this year.

Thanks for your help. I love these flowers, but have never had consistent luck with them. Any other tips are much appreciated.

I think you have time. I planted a clearance bulb last summer (late June or so). It bloomed vigorously until October. I was hooked from there on out. So, if you can find them at a discount, go ahead and plant directly in the ground. Here is a pic of one of last year's blooms.
