Bishop of Auckland dahlia buds won't open
After so,e storm damage I salvaged the broken stems of my Bishop of Auckland dahlia and took them indoors to use as cut flowers.
I've just noticed a recurrence of something that I have seen happen on other dahlias in my garden. The buds develop very full and tight but don't open.
They eventually just die...
or or actually seem to rot. The ones shown above have not reached that stage yet and I'm wondering if there is anything I can do to help them open.
