Potted Dahlia Blooms Turn Brown And Dry Up In A Day Or Two

Question From: c. waiting - Spokane, Washington, United States
Q: I have my Dahlias in pots and the new blooms turn brown and dry up in a day or two. The plant itself looks fine and healthy. We have been having very hot temps lately. I water them just about everyday. Cant figure out what the problem is.

A: Hot weather will do it. I'd move the pots into an area that is out of the sun in the afternoon. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
