Sounds like scab roy.

"Common scab is caused by a bacterium that produces roughly circular lesions on the tuber surface that are slightly sunken at the centre with flakes of skins surrounding the lesion"

Take a look at google images under 'dahlia tubers scab' and let us know if it looks the same please.

You are obviously a true gardener Shrinking Violet and not a farmer. (no offence either way)

Thanks for your experience and true comments it's very refreshing to hear from someone that has had to endure the after affects. 

Hope things are getting sorted now. Would love to here more.

I missed the whole story 1Runnybeak1. It was deleted (for obvious reasons) from before I got back so only had other peoples comments and posts to try and understand what had gone on. I think I have the jist but not 100% sure. 

Do not worry. As long as you and all your family are OK now then I will be happy knowing that.

PM if need be.

Hands up all who have tried salt in stead of sugar in bitter coffee.

You will be surprised. Not in how many liked it but in how many liked to try it as they were always told to take suger with coffee as it was the norm.

Please do not ever try black ground coffee with coriander/ Cilantro juice and ginger.

Its just for the gods.

Half the time, I'm not sure myself.

Twin sisters are difficult in the dark, now but one knows where the button is and the other one does not like stitches. 

I have a staple gun?

(copper of course as they do not rust and are good for arthritis in the morning)

Funny how you find new things when you break the rules. Isn't it!!!Rules are meant to be broken. 
We would never gain anything if we were told what to do.
That is what they want us to do!!!! 
Forgive me please but who is this they???? That they tells me to p*ss and sh* t and do things????
When I need to? 
That is never going to happen. There is nothing left to gain buy doing it all the same way, your world just continues and does not change nothing left to gain.
Try salt in your coffee rather than sugar and see what happens.

Beware of sycophants in the first two weeks, Panda.

Pink or white ones Fairygirl????

Off topic. Do you know how many North African white rhinoceros are left and how much we spend on Anti-poaching While the rich save stem cells for future use

They have just put one of the last one down with old age. The other two are no better. (not sure what to say about this but we are too late and don't care enough)

I'ts sad when we 'THE HUMANS' can pick and choose who we want to survive
