Top tips for over­win­ter­ing dahlias

Amateur Gardening - - Pick Of The Very Best -

You should get to know your soil. A wa­ter­logged soil won’t be a good home for dahlias in win­ter.

Over the win­ter, check the stored tu­bers for rot and dis­card any that are in poor health.

Dry tu­bers well be­fore stor­ing. Al­ways store tu­bers in a dark, frost-free place free of ro­dents.

Make sure you have a sys­tem of la­belling your tu­bers, or else you’ll be at risk of plant­ing the short­est dahlia at the back of the bor­der!
