Tipping new dahlia plants

I have just planted two new dahlias in pots,Pooh and Karma Lagoon, one already has a flower bud, they are about 16 inches tall now, should I remove the flower bud and pinch out the dahlias to encourage a more bushy plant and more flowers, if so is now a good time to do it.

    If they are not already branched, pinching out will make them bushier. Sacrifice the flower now for more later.
    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3
