Growing Dahlias in Containers

Lombard, IL(Zone 5a)

Can anyone offer any advice about starting dahlias indoors? I've noticed that HD already has spring bulbs and tubers in stock and I'm tempted to buy some dahlias to get a head start this year. I live in Zone 5 (Chicago burbs) and have a large, sunny 3-season room in which to get started. Any advice would be very much appreciated.
