If you have well-drained soil and live in a mild part of the coun­try, dahlia plants can over­win­ter suc­cess­fully in the ground with just the pro­tec­tion of a thick mulch. How­ever, slugs and snails can re­move new shoots in spring and there’s a risk of plants rot­ting in a cold, wet winter. The al­ter­na­tive is to wait un­til plants have been knocked back by frost then dig up the tu­bers, la­bel them and store in barely damp sand or old pot­ting com­post in a frost-free shed or garage over winter ready to pot up again next spring.
