Uh Oh did I mess up?
Upon reading all the posts here regarding planting methods for dahlias, I need some advise. I planted lots of dahlias this spring for my cut flower business and upon receiving the tubers, I dug my holes and looking at the shape of the tubers, with their 'fingers' hanging down I mounded up the center of the hole so that they sat with the middle of the tuber on the top of the mound and the fingers hanging down the sides and filled in the holes. Some of them had eyes showing and some did not. The ones that had eyes are showing signs of life but the others are not. Did I plant these wrong? TIA for any input. Kat
