planting dahlia tips needed

pieheart(6)May 15, 2008

I just got my first dahlia bulbs and need some advice. I have been reading the forums and saw to dig a hole six inches deep, cover with 2 inches of soil, then gradually fill in as the plant grows. Also, I am not supposed to water right away, not until I see growth. But, according to the weather forecast it is supposed to rain every day for pretty much the next week.

Should I wait to plant? It's not supposed to be steady, all day rain every day (although it is tomorrow), just a period of rain every day. What should I do?

Plant them! They'll be just fine.
