So Dissapointed in Tubers
I purchased two Dahlia Tubers off of Ebay from what I thought was a reputable dealer, one was Edge of Joy and the other was Clair Osborne. I planted them in seed starting soil in the house to get them started early. After a few weeks, there was nothing, so last night I dug them up and they're all soft and falling apart and there's no eyes on either tuber.
The tubers I purchased from Swan Island Dahlias and planted after those two, have shoots just beginning to emerge. I am so frustrated and mad at myself for being so trusting. I didn't water the tubers much, only misted the tops of the soil every other day.
Did I do something wrong? If I did, why are the other tubers sending up shoots? I thought I saw eyes on these tubers when I planted them, maybe it was wishful thinking on my part. Anyway, a lesson learned.
