if lifting Dahlia before the frost, let them dry/ wilt before?
as I want to avoid a mad rush of harvest/work after the first frost I pondered lifting some potted Dahlias of mine earlier.
I know that a light frost is supposed to help the tubers to ripen or go dormant. So if I lift some tubers soon, should I stopp watering them for a week or two? So far the days get still very warm, with cool nights. Some have mildew already and dont look great anymore (neglected them slightly).
Thanks for your advice, cheers
