I have been growing my Dahlia tubers in shallow trays of light compost in the greenhouse, with a view to take cuttings from them before planting them out.
Some of the tubers have multiple shoots growing and should give quite a few cuttings from them.
My question concerns the tubers with only one shoot of growth. Will I in any way harm the tuber by removing the only shoot of growth, or will removing the shoot stimulate the tuber into growing more?
Or should I leave the tubers with only one shoot alone and just plant them out to grow on this year.
