Not Enough Blooms...Suggestions?
I am getting only one or two blooms per plant. Even on the few plants that I pinched earlier in the season. It's my first year, so I am sure that I didn't quite get the pinching right. Is there anything that I can do at this point to produce more blooms? The blooms I am getting are pretty healthy and have nice color. I would like to see lots more if possible. If there isn't anything I can do this year, I'd love tips for what to do for next year.
I'm due to fertilize again this week, and I can't find "Morblooms" anywhere. What does everyone like for flower production?
I read instructions on Dahlia.org on how to pinch back, and how to disbud, but it didn't make a whole lot of sense...is pinching done with the fingernails or a set of shears?
