Too soon to plant dahlia tubers?
I don't know about the rest of you, but I've got spring fever pretty bad right now. We're living in a new house this year with a new and totally empty garden that's begging to be planted. I've got about 5 different types of dahlia tubers I just picked up and am wondering if I could plant them sooner rather than later. At my last garden, I never dug up my tubers but just left them in the ground. (Yes, I'm a lazy gardener...) They were supposedly hardy only to zone 8, but they still came back 3 years in a row before we moved. This suggests to me that perhaps it doesn't matter when I plant them. Any thoughts from you experienced zone 7 dahlia growers out there?
