This is my first Dahlia of the season. Up here in Powell we have such a short growing season that I get one flower and then we get a frost and I loose all the other buds. Also this year we've had an amazing amount of grasshoppers and they're eating all my buds as you can tell by this flower. Does anyone have any advise on how to deal with the grasshoppers and when it gets to cold? Yesterday morning it was 34 degrees! I need a lot of help.
