First Time with Dahlias - Questions

June 17, 2018

Hi there,

I'm attempting to grow Dahlias for the first time this year. They are around 2.5 ft tall and have many buds on them. One had opened and it was glorious - the size of my son's head. The rest aren't getting nearly that big when opening. The blooms are also only staying around for a day or two once they finally open. The two seen in the pictures that aren't fully open, finally opened all the way and a day later are practically spent. The last picture is also a bloom that opened and withered up a day later. I'm wondering if there's something I should be doing or if you can see anything going on from these images? Any and all dahlia advice is greatly welcome and appreciated! I'm winging it a bit.
