Dahlia season truly will begin here in just a few weeks. Mike will be bringing his dahlia tubers out of storage and planting them. He does this in February so that the tubers have time to make lots of little plants. Each tuber generates several cuttings, each getting a nice headstart towards being early bloomers, instead of just autumn bloomers.
