Looking for Plastic Wrap method that was on Picture Trail

Last year I found the site that pictured step by step, picture by picture on how to do the plastic wrap method for dahlia tubers. This was a slide presentation on Picture Trail. I can't seem to access it. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Thanks, Lorraine from Toronto, Ontario Canada.

RE: Looking for Plastic Wrap method that was on Picture Trail

Did you use Saran Wrap to store your tubers last year? If so, how did it work? Oddly enough, I've been able to overwinter my dahlias by just tossing them, clean and dry, into a box in our basement. No vermiculite or any other covering. I've had to make sure they stand upright, otherwise the new growth in spring is all wonky before I even notice. Mother Nature should not reward my laziness like only encourages me!

The Picture Trail account you saw last year could have been cancelled or changed. (?) I found the method for you on a web page, but I could not link directly to it because of problems GW has been having with spam.

If you Google: "No Fuss: Store Your Tubers in Plastic Wrap", you should be able to find the page you want.

Thanks for the google page. I did a search and came across the No Fuss that someone had posted on Garden Web. Cheers! Lorraine
