I will be moving to a new house.
I will be moving to a new house towards the end of Sept. I have some dahlias that were given as a gift from my dad and want to take them along. Not being a dahlia expert..... would I cut back the foilage now and then store them over the winter -OR- would I take the whole plant with me and transplant it into the ground wait for the growing season to finish then cut it back for storage?
The dahlias are about 15 inches high and have bloomed beautifully all summer.
I sure would hate to leave the plants here. (The person moving in has admitted to no interest in gardening and I do not want the tubers to become sentimental mulch!)
