Is my dahlia dead?
Hello, I have a bad track record with dahlias, and ever-optimistic have tried again. I potted a plump, healthy-looking tuber, bought from a reputable supplier, at the end of February. I've kept the compost just damp and the pot in a warmish spot - utility room. No sign of any growth yet. I've had a tentative poke around in the compost, but am frightened of damaging it if there is life there somewhere. Am I being impatient or should it be shooting by now? How damp should the compost be?
