The thing that stops me from plunging into dahlias is the digging, storing, replanting thing. There's a man on the mountain behind me that has several 1000 dahlias and has a shed JUST for storing them over winter. He gets temps 5-10 degrees colder than me, year round.
Is there not some super process of mulching that would mean I didn't have to dig? I mean a bag of cedar shavings poured on the plants, something?????
