He used reinforcing bar available from builders merchants and possibly somewhere like B&Q.  I remember thinking that it would take some strength to bend it but it does come in a variety of diameters so maybe the smaller ones would bend.  Have you checked out the BBC GW website as they may have a video clip in their 'How to' section.

What you propose would work as long as the pots don't freeze.  I aways remove the tubers from the pots so that I can check for vine weevil grubs at the roots, they love dahlias.  I then wrap them up in newspaper and pack them in a cardboard box to store in the shed over winter.  In the spring I repot them in fresh compost.

Gently scrape away the soil from around the base of the baby plant to see if it has rooted.  If it has you should gently prise it out doing as little damage to the roots as possible.  If there are no roots leave it a bit longer.

The RHS website has a plant finder section that lists growers for plants.  Many offer a mail order service and generally the plants are first class, web address is  rhs.org.uk.  You don't need to be a member to use the service.
