Dahlia Bulbs

09.21.12
This year I planted a few Dahlia bulbs and I am wondering about keeping them for next year. I know I have to take the bulbs out of the ground but do they have to stay in dirt with some foliage or what? Mary Jo

    I planted Dahlias for the first time ever this year and I must say I do not think I will keep mine or ever plant them again. Perhaps it was the drought conditions we have....????

    In zones 8 and warmer, dahlias can be overwintered in the ground. Otherwise you need to lift them. After a killing frost, cut the foliage back to 2 to 4 inches above the ground. Lift each clump separately with a spading fork and gently brush the soil off
