Hello - I am new on here and newish to gardening too and any help is much appreciated. I have a load of dahlia tubers from last year, what should I do with them. Can I plant them straight out into pots now or is it too early? Also I have a miniture daffodil pot indoors that has finished blooming. Can I do anything with the bulbs or is it the end of them?

Many thanks.

Plant the daffodil in the garden-it may come back next year

Two choices on the dahlias-you can probably plant them as tubers in the garden/containers  now-or preferably start them off in pots under cover so they get a bit of warmth and a head start and plant out at the end of May

Welcome dahlia help.
I agree with lazy gardener.
I'm great believer in potting up dahlia tubers and keeping in the greenhouse for 2 or 3 weeks. You will then have much bigger and better plants for your garden
