Dahlia bud opening time?

mackga(7)September 16, 2007

I have some A & B size dahlias with buds that are starting to open. Is it ok to go ahead and cut the buds and place in a vase? will they open any faster or should i just leave them on the plant?

I would think they'll have the best chance if left on the plant. No buds I cut have ever opened to full glory like 'vine ripened.'
