I have some concerns about my Dahlia “happy Flame”

I bought this about four weeks ago and potted it up straight away. The plant had a good showing of unopened flower’s and I even thought one would open straight away but four weeks later I still have yet to see any signs of buds opening.


The plant has doubled in size and in buds, is there some thing wrong or am I just being impatient.

The plant is sitting in full sun also in a shared pot with other plants that are doing well

All my dahlias have opened now but everything is early,here. Some dahlias are earlier,than others and I'm sure yours will flower soon. When you potted on it would have made your plant simply grow instead of flower. Almost overnight buds appear and then flower so patience for little while longer I think.
