Is it too late

Toledo, OR(Zone 8a)

Is it too late for me to plant my Dahlia's? We have had so much rain I just didn't want to take a chance of rotting the bulbs. Yes, that much rain. Anyhow's can I plant them now and get a bumper crop or should I just wait till next year

Go for it! Poochella's been planting hers the past few weeks so you may be in the clear.

Yea! I say go for it. You have that dahlia magic, being in the Pacific NW. I bet you'll get plenty of blooms before winter.

Is it raining today or are you out planting?

Nope, no rain today so I am going to get them in the ground. I have a good friend that has been newly diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer and I am going to be spending the morning with her. She is getting her new wig today and wants me to be there to help arrange it on her.
I have made her several hats but she is looking forward to some hair again.
So bulb, tubers, may have to wait till later this afternoon. Priorities

Good luck to your friend.
