How to protect Dahlia's?
I was hoping someone could provide me with information on how to protect my Dahlia's from severe weather. I live on the East Coast of Canada and it looks like Hurricane Bill will hit us this week-end.
I am not worried about most of my other plants as they have some shelter, but the Dahlia's are all out in the open. A few are in full bloom, with many others about to burst. I think they'll be able to take the rain, but it is the strong winds I am worried about. It would be a shame to lose them so late in our growing season here.
Can I put together some sort of temporary shelter over them? Any help is very much appreciated!
