Western Washington Dahlia Newbie - Tips
Hello, I am in love with Dahlias, they grow so beautifully here in the Pac NW! This season will be my first one with the big ones. I live on the Olympic Peninsula near Bremerton. I was just wondering when people around here plant their tubers? Do you start them early in pots? It is pretty mild here, last frost is March 20th. I got Thomas Edison, Minnesota, and Le Baron. Is it necessary to lift them in the fall here? I had my little garden ones come back without lifting. Any tips and advice are much appreciated! Thanks!
