Would you take sprout cuttings from a newly received tuber?
I've received some interesting new dahlia cultivars through the mail already and I'll be getting some more in a few days from Swan Island. I'd love to grow more than just one plant of some of these but I don't know if I have the nerve to take cuttings from these unique new additions to my collection. I've been having excellent success taking sprout cuttings this spring, much better than last year, and I feel much more confident with my propagation technique but still I'm a little hesitant to turn these new selections into mother tubers right off the bat. Perhaps I should just wait and try some tip cuttings once the plants are bigger? Who would have the confidence to take cuttings right away?
