If dahlia stalk has died can tuber be saved?

gardengal70(KC MO)August 27, 2006

The subject says it all. I planted a new dahlia tuber this spring. Looked OK for awhile but never developed and eventually just a dead stalk left. Is it possible that the tuber could be dug out and kept for next year? Thanks. Marie

It did develop the stalk....so something lived for a time.
I guess its worth the effort to dig it up AFTER a hard frost kills whatever is up top, and store in a cool environemnt until about the time you put out your annuals.
