I bought a lovely smallI bought a lovely small Dahlia plant with lots of buds and pink flowers, I watered it a little each day in the pot for a week till I was able to plant it. After a few days it started to wilt. I then planted it in a sunny but protected position away from windy weather, it quickly declined and the leaves wilted, the flowers wilted and eventually became crisp and soggy. What did I do wrong please? What should I do with it now to rescue for another year? Please help, as it was very beautiful.
