Not a dahlia expert.....don't grow as many as Hostafan does but ....grow a fair number though ......but the secret of getting lots of flowers in the first year is to start them off early.
My method is to take them out of their bag asap and pot up in pots of dry mpc. Keep frost free in gh or comservstory. in early spring start light watering and increase this the more green shoots you see and look to repot often. I find small tubers flower later but still very floriferous.
oh, keep them labelled
