This is the third year I've had this particular dahlia and this last fall I did not dig the tubers. I covered the bed with several layers of newspaper and then about a foot of pine straw and leaves. This is a spectacular color and the plant is healthy and strong. I fed with a general timed-release fertilizer in mid-April when I uncovered the bed.
