Moving From TN to MI
It looks like I'll be moving from Tennessee to Michigan sometime in mid-September. I'm looking for input on how to move my dahlia tubers (~60 total). I'm thinking of digging them up and cutting them back heavily, labeling them and putting them in a bin of damp peat moss for the journey. It'll probably be three to four days from the time of digging to replanting.
However, the first frost where I'll be moving to is sometime in late September to early October. That said, I'm thinking I should still replant them upon arriving and let them experience a killing frost to allow them to go dormant for the winter, as I'd imagine they'll still be in growth mode, but I'm not exactly sure on how to go about that, or if there is a better alternative. Thoughts?
Thanks in advance!
