Is it too early for dahlias to sprout this year? Last year I had many long sprouts by now. April this year nothing at all! Are they all dead?



mine started sprouting just this week - hang on - keep them warm - lit and watered.


My backup dahlias are in pots in a cold greenhouse and have not shown yet, though I think I can see rising of the surface compost. It all depends on when you planted them. They are triggered into growth when first watered.  I am not sure I am going to need them. while moving some small shrubs last week I found a healthy dahlia tuber a few inches under the surface. I had assumed the cold winter would have got them this year (Lincolnshire!). So I'll have to find somewhere to squeeze teh new ones in.
