Up and up and up. and out. If you cut into brown wood it will not regrow. I would get it out now, before you need a crane.

Frost got my dahlias

Sometimes if you have multiple stems, you hold each stem and wiggle it and they come apart.  Some of mine split as I took them up. If they don't I just use bigger pots to start them off in next year.

Frost got my dahlias

I dug the remainder up today. The frost got them last night. They are now in the greenhouse. Amazing how dry the soil is under them, I have more bulbs to plant in the gaps, but as the weather is supposed to warm up at the weekend, I will do it then. It's brass monkey weather out there.

Leaf ID please

Some came in my bouquets last year. They were just described as Ruscus. I have never grown either , so well done  Kitty and Ladybird.

Hard frost here overnight. I haven't ventured out yet, but I suspect that will have done the remaining dahlias in. Leaves are starting to come down in earnest, shame hubby spent most of yesterday mowing them up.
