Dahlias checkedthey looked pretty good. Some rot.

Dahlias went into atticsome were still a bit on the wet side. I poured in quite a bit of vermiculite. We will see what happens.
I pulled out Dahlia Bishop of Llandoff and the tuber was a bit shriveled but I don't think it was dead. There were sprouts on it. I misted it and bagged it and it is with the other tubers.

Dahlias for ErinTyler James
Myrtles' Folly as soon as I can divide.
Sunday, January 1, 2011
Sprayed DahliasMost looked good - nice and plump. One - Lavendar looked shriveled.
The attic has not been all that cold. Some of the dahilas seemed to be starting to sprout. I am hoping the early sprouting does not make them fragile or weakened.

Misted Dahlia TubersMisted dahlia tubers today. They look pretty good so far. I did notice that 1 was trying to sprout and several were putting out new roots. I am wondering if that means they are too warm...
