Dig before frost???

susanan_gwOctober 9, 2011

The voles are active again and there is no frost in sight. In past years, when I've left tubers in the ground too long, they've been eaten.Can I dig them up before they get hit by frost and will they still store OK? Thanks for any advice. Susanan

I have never dug them before a frost but there is a post below titled "when to dig my dahlias" and some people have commented that they dig them early and they are just fine.
