Here in my zone 6 garden, I dig and store my dahlia tubers every year. While I may be able to technically leave the tubers in the garden with some protection, my tiny growing space requires that I use the space for planting other blooms. Anyway, I just wanted to quickly show just how many tubers we were able to pull from the yard this year.
One of my favorite things about growing dahlias is that you almost always get more in return. This year, I planted several new varieties of single tubers and was rewarded with very large clumps at digging time. Saving the new tubers and dividing them is an excellent way to grow your garden without spending any additional money.
Over the next few days, I’ll be processing and cleaning the tubers for storage. If you’re interested, be sure to watch for my latest post about the progress. Have you ever grown dahlias before? I’d love to hear all about it in the comments below! I hope you’re having a great day!
