|I planted several dahlia tubers over 3 weeks ago, and none of them has started growing yet. The tubers look okay (we dug a few up to check on them). How long does it usually take before they show the first signs of growth?

|Dahlias prefer to grow in warm soils, so perhaps the air temperature is warm in your garden, but the soil is still a little clammy. Dahlias in my garden normally sprout within 3 weeks of planting so yours should begin showing signs of life pretty soon. Dahlias are such spectacular bloomers that they're definitely worth the wait!
