I guess you have to dig up the dahlias in the winter? They are pretty,,,,,but I forget about digging them up.

What winter storage "method" do you use for dahlias, cannas, etc.? I've experimented with several ways and am still searching for the perfect solution .... Many thx, Jan

Alchymist,

I should write a post about this. After the first hard frost, I dig them up, clean them off and dry them in the sun for about two days. Then, I write the name of the dahlia on the actual tuber. Then I store them in individual plastic containers with peet moss. I write the name of the dahlia on the outside of the container too.
