I just found some dahlia bulbs that I forgot to plant in the spring. Should I plant them now or wait until spring?

Your dahlia tubers are not likely to survive until next spring unless you get them into the ground now. Don't expect a lot of growth from them now, but they should at least rehydrate and be ready to grow for you next spring. The tubers are susceptible to rot if the soil does not drain quickly so be sure to find a well draining spot for them in the garden.

Best wishes with your dahlias!
