Opposite for me..dahlias,,all of them, have been flowering for a few weeks now.

Are you guys feeding your dahlias growing in the garden soil?  If so, this may be your problem.  a lot of lushious foliage?  Some places have had a lot of rain makimg for growth rather than flower

just been out a huntin'.     

not many slugs and snails.  Not many out there but, golly, some big slugs.  I swear without a word of exaggeration that some slugs were 60 cm long and as thick as my wrist . Swore one growled at me....or maybe it was my dog 

it seems to me that slugs and snails don't go for my purple foliage dahlia varieties....Twynings After Eight, The Bishop, Bishop's Children.  The green varieties are attacked though.  

so, my observation!  Is this your experience too folks?
