Highly significant results were obtained when a local dahlia variety was tested on four sowing dates at fortnightly interval, starting from 10th of September. Its performance was judged for seed germination time, plant height, days to flower, blooming period, flower size and seed yield/replication. Seed sowing of 25th of September took five days to germinate, which was a minimum time. All the other characters studied varied with sowing time. The best sowing time recommended is 25th of September. Availability of Dahlia flowers can be preplanned by adjusting the sowing time.
