I been digging mine up this evening after last night frost, I soldiered on in the dark for the last few. Unfortunately digging up in the dark risks damaging the tubers . They are now in Gh upside down drying off.
I store mine in a box covering the tuber up to its neck with old compost, I leave in the cold gh for winter.
Glad I've got them out of the ground snow forecast tonight. It went below -3C last night but hasn't knocked everything back. still got cosmos - asters - rudbeckias - petunias other summer bedding still flowering away, it didnt even get all the dahlias. it not the first hard frost either.
