The Q&A Archives: Dahlia - Green Foilage and Buds but will not flower.

Question: My Dahlias are green and have buds, but the buds have been there for a least two weeks and will not bloom. I Dead headed the first blooms and keep the plant moist but not saturated. What could be the problem

Answer: If you are patient, the buds will eventually open. It's been my experience that after pinching, it takes 6 weeks for buds to develop and another 3 weeks for them to open. Your patience will be rewarded!
