Dahlia's in pots - i need expert advice, so thought i'd ask you all. i will be planting my dahlia tubers in pots tomorrow and will keep them indoors until the frosts have passed. This is the first time i have attempted to grow dahlias and although i have researched this, i am getting conflicting reports on whether i should dampen the soil after planting them or wait until the first growth emerges and then water them. I know they dont like too much water and that this can cause them to rot. But one website even said to plant them in the soil, cover but DONT add any water until growth appears. what do i do? thanks.
