Great Fun Attending a Dahlia Show

By Paul2032

My parents were plant lovers, and I remember attending flower shows with them when I was quite young. There were a number of active plant societies then, and many towns had garden clubs that put on a show each year. There was also the state fair and there were some county fairs with shows.

Last year was the first year I have really "done" anything with dahlias-- I'm fascinated and had a good turm out this year.. I am in the midst of "lifting the tublars" for the winter-- I have read two different approaches for doig so. 1, stated never to separate the tublars 2, sugessted to diided so that the differing tublars would receive more enrgy. I decided for fun, to do both. The tublars I have divided I've maarked in separate packages and shall plant them separately in different parts of the garden, come spring-- any suggestions on all of this, would be appreciated. Confused

I prefer separating them in spring when I can see how the tubers overwintered. Welcome to ATP.
