I recently received Dahlia bulbs and planted them and was wondering, do you need to remove them after the stop blooming? What about Tiger Lilies?

You need to dig and store the dahlia tubers and the lily bulbs. Wait until frost kills the tops of the plants, then carefully dig them and store them in peat moss in a cool area but one that remains above freezing all winter. Replant in the spring when the soil warms and both your dahlias and lilies should bloom nicely for you next summer. Enjoy!
