Dig up dahlias in san francisco for winter
I went to the san francisco page for dalhia, it links the CA dahlia society. It said to dig them and do all of this stuff to them and store them. It was way too complicated and time consuming. I am going to chance leaving them in the ground. I could see just digging them up and sticking them in the basement, but you would believe all the work involved in digging them up. They have to hardened off, dug up and treated with chemicals and stored in vermiculite. There is no advice if you can leave them in the ground in san francisco where we don't get 32 degrees. Last winter we got 42 as the coldest. It would be easier to buy new ones then to spend all that time, effort and money buying products to treatment them with. I have enough work to do for gardening as it is.
