Dying Dahlias

Can anyone tell me why my dahlias are suddenly dying off, they were all healthy & thriving a few days ago. I've raised them from seed in a plastic greenhouse & they were doing really well. Thanks

    I think they’ve got too cold in the plastic GH,  and the slugs have eaten the top shoots off them.   I would bring them indoors for a few weeks and check for the slug, he’s lurking there somewhere at the bottom of the pots/trays.

    The greenhouse they're in is warm, but you think maybe not warm enough?

    They are babies, they need a bit of Molly codellying,
