Storing dahlias

Sat 28 Oct 2006

Apparently, if you are are desperate for rain all you have to do is whine about it on your blog. :) It’s been raining for the past week and I couldn’t be happier. My garden has puddles. Frozen puddles, but puddles no less. I’m so happy because if it keeps it up I’ll be retiring the hose for the winter.

With the cold temps everything has pretty much turned to mush, except for these few dahlias I picked. I think it’s great to see such bright colors considering we’ve had frost.

All my dahlia tubers are dug, washed & drying now. I haven’t decided how I am going to go about storing them but I think I am going to try something different this year. Last year I only lost one tuber but the rest were so shriveled. I think there has got to be a better way. So I’ll try a couple different methods to see what works best. If anyone would like to share their secrets with me, I’m all ears.
