October: Storing Dahlias

Dahlia tubers can be kept over the winter for use next spring if stored in the proper conditions – a dry, cool place (5-10 C).  Store them in a container which will allow ventilation.  Line the bottom with a layer of peat moss – place your clump in the peat moss with the stem pointing down.  There can be two layers of tubers in a container.  Cover the top layer with a layer of peat moss.
