I have a Dahlia planted in a pot and it has buds on it but they don't bloom. It has been that way for several weeks now. What am I doing wrong?

Thank you for your question.

I checked with a Master Gardener who is an expert on growing dahlias....here is her response:

"I think it hasn’t been warm enough. Or sunny. Mine refuse to grow. They are tropical plants, so they need warmth and humidity. Patience! It’s still really early."

Hope this helps!
