Last year I dug up my 175+ dahlias and stored them over the winter. This is what they look like now in April.
This year I grew around 175 dahlia tubers in my cut flower garden. I think I underestimated how much work it was going to be to dig all of them! However, it really only took about 2-3 days total for stalk cutting, digging and packing. I suppose that makes it worth it! How I prepped…
What do the dahlias look like after a frost? They look pretty black and dead. Right now they are busy sending all of their energy down to the tubers.
The first dahlia I bought is called Holland Festival. This is the dahlia that started it all for me.
Anyone can grow dahlias as long as you follow some important guidelines.
