Started Indoors - Transplanted Outside - Not Looking Good
Hello. I have some questions on transplanting established dahlias. I can't find much info re how to do this. This is the first year I've tried this. I started my dahlias indoors in April and they were just fantastic. I hardened them off and transplanted them outside in late May (after frost in my area). They are still languishing. One died - the others look spindly, not lush as when I start the tubers directly in the ground. The questions I have are: (1) Is it possible to plant the tubers too deeply? I'm pretty sure I went well past 6 inches because I forgot about the size of the pots I was using. And (2) Should I not have mulched them? Are the tubers languishing because they are planted too deeply? Thank you.
