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

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!
