By Mig Case

I purchased a dahlia from my local nursery. It is 1 1/2 ft tall and established. It came in a plastic pot. I wanted to get it in to a bigger clay pot for the summer. When transplanting the small roots stuck to the sides of the pot so I had to pull it from the plastic pot. It is now living in a clay pot plenty big enough, in the sun and has been watered. It is NOT happy. Is it in "shock"? and will it come back. I fear I have done something wrong. Thanks in advance for your advice.
