How to Disbud dahlias by the Dahlia Guy
The Dahlia Guy is going to explain the importance of disbudding dahlias. He explains that when you disbud a dahlia it allows the main flower to blossom to its fullest potential. When you don't disbud, the other buds that grow out of the flower can stunt the growth of the main flower. Now, when you disbud you want to locate the main flower of the group (3 buds usually, sometimes 2) and then just pull out the buds that are growing next to it. There is no true right or wrong way to disbud so any way you remove the buds is fine. Lastly, remember that to enter a dahlia in a show or to make the best arrangement, you must disbud the flower; so get to work because all dahlias have buds to be picked off.
