OOoh save me one! I had a dahlia a few years ago and put it in the shed over winter the way you are todl to keep them..replantes the tuber following year..but alas it died..maybe too cold here. I want oto emigrate to Barbados! lol :)

Oooh tell me when you're going I'll come with you....

Yes I'll save you some seeds or the little plants whichever.....I know some people take up their Dahlia Corms but I never do...I just cover with the stems I've cut down, and then with straw, with a stone on top to hold in place....A 90 something year old told me that years ago...lol....works for me....

That's great they should be fine, mine seem to have taken ok...as long as they have their own little roots...

Yep I'm fine, it was a tummy bug; leaves you a bit flat.. A couple of members have been poorly too...so there
seems to be a little bug doing the rounds....
