The Q&A Archives: storing dahlia,canna

Question: hello, I live in apartment coop. Where can i store dahlias and canna bulbs if I do not have an attached garage. I have a detached garage wee temps freeze and a storage room that goes above 60. Thank you, Vianca

Answer: The purpose of a cool and dark storage place for your dahlias and cannas is to keep them from sprouting prematurely and to keep them from dehydrating. Choose the coolest place that remains above freezing to store them. If they don't perform well after storage you may have to consider them annuals and instead of digging and storing just toss the plants at the end of the growing season. Wish I had more encouraging news for you!
