Dahlias:  Dos And Don'ts

By Sharon

My love for dahlias got off to a really slow start. I much preferred soil beneath my fingernails than for those same nails to be blackened by bruises from driving dahlia stakes into the ground. And the truth was, dahlias had no other purpose on earth than to stand around looking totally tall and beautiful. I liked plants that had a reason for being, like tomatoes. Now there was a plant worth growing even if it did need to be staked.

Last year for first time I planted Dahlias, they came up great, no problems. Just tying them all up all the time to keep them from bending. I did not mind.
One question from a nubie. I got them in a package of 4 clumps last year. I just put each clump in its own hole and they grew good. The question is, could you separate each one from its clump of 4 or more, into just one tuber and plant. I guess you would have to find an eye on each one as to not cut it away. Is it hard or should I just leave well enough alone? Thanks
