Beautiful Dahlia

I'm a recent Dahlia convert...(like this summer!!) I really like this one and the best part is you can dig up the rhizome and put it in a box someplace dark and cool (you shouldn't have any trouble finding a place, right?) next spring you can pot it up and start it early...great plants for northern gardens.

Thanks Lori. I'm guessing there's a wait for the plant to die down and look finished before I pull them?

They bloom right up to killing frost...some have said to let them take a nip of frost and then dig them up. frost of not I usually dig them up first week of November when I'm planting bulbs for next spring.

November the bed will be solid as a rock. Maybe in a few weeks for me. :-)

ahhh yes! how is the perma frost layer up there these days? where it is thawing in spots and starting to rot...producing that a internet propagated myth, do you think?

Oh no. My frog pond is a result of the whole property caving in after the ice sheet beneath melted. We have sink holes popping up in town that have attempted swallowing people. General has lost only about 9 or 10 feet, but that is definitely significant. Northern shores are eroding away because the ice on the oceans is receding and whole villages are tumbling into the sea. This is no myth. I don't know about the methane, but we are very full of peat down there. Could be all sorts of gases.
