I live in Oregon in zone 8 and I LOVE dahlias and have had them for many years. For years I tried to dig them and store them as I was instructed, yet nothing worked and I always lost them. One year I was given some information about the rain being more of an enemy to my tubers than the freeze was.

We (Pirl) and I were just discussing novel ways of protecting large bulbs (lilies, allium, etc). Your way sounds easier and far less messy. I may use your method on some and the sand method on others and see which works best. Thanks so much for the idea and the lovely pictures. Thank You!
