Dahlias do need to be dug and stored for the winter months. Wait until frost turns the stems and foliage black then cut the foliage away and dig the tubers. Brush off excess dirt and set them in a box filled with dry peat moss or sawdust. Keep the box in a cool area but one that remains above freezing. In the spring your can replant your dahlia tubers. Enjoy your garden!
