The fact that you grow dahlias in Alaska makes you a star in the dahlia world from where I sit.

Thank you, but other than the fact that this year it was not sunny enough to keep them happy, and that we've never seen so many slugs, this is actually an excellent place for dahlias. I always start mine indoors to avoid young shoots from being eaten by slugs (although this year they even ate large shoots) and so that I get at least a full month of bloom before frost (but unless we get a late first frost that won't happen this year). Other than that, they're a relatively carefree plant here.

I lost about 20 dahlia tubers, because the slugs ate the shots before they had time to leaf. I have slug problems in thge past but not this bad. I will never start a tuber in the ground again.
