The main stem of one of my dahlias got broken. The plant was almost a foot high and it was broken 4-5 inches above the ground. There are few buds, but no leaves. I dont really expect it to bloom this year, but will it growbe able to survive and make strong enough tubers for the next year.

RE: damaged plant

I don't know where you are but at this point if it happened to one of mine I would expect it to be up and blooming again nicely by the end of summer. I think you will likely have very nice tubers from this. IT may also kick it into tuber making as a survival method!

RE: damaged plant

Thanks for the encouraging. I live in Bulgaria and the summer is ust starting now, it was raining heavily the past month. By the way, do I have to water my plants because it as already in the 100s now and this is my first year growing dahlias?
