Dahlias grown from seed, tubers?

Posted: 07/09/2014 at 13:50

This is probably the stupidest question you'll ever see on here, and I've tried googling to no avail.

I love my dahlias, and they won't be ready to form seed pods to collect before we move house, but as I grew them from seed will there be tubers for me to store, or replant in a sheltered warm spot in the new garden?

It's two weeks before we move, and the dahlias have been thriving so well in the small border, I'd be sad to leave them behind.

Thanks for your help as ever!

New garden new start... Fingers crossed

Can't think too long term or be too destructive as we don't own the property. Just renting it out for a while

whenever I've melted white chocolate it splits and tastes awful I wanted to make a white chocolate and raspberry tray bake.

Does it count if it's a veg? We had some Broccoli rescued from homebase for 50p we thought all were eaten and past repair, but suddenly out of nowhere we've got a great ruddy huge broccoli risen from the ashes!

And turn up I did. Still a distinct lacking of West Midlands folk I see

Maybe my ears were burning and that's what brought me back to post.

Were you fishy? Where?
It's been a good couple of months since I've been on here.

It's been well maintained, but not loved, hopefully we can give it a bit of TLC

we're hoping this little number goes into the sale http://www.wilko.com/garden-furniture/wilko-garden-furniture-balcony-bistro-set-textilene-red/invt/0343748 at the end of september, £60 won't break the bank, but it'd be nice to get it a little cheaper, as with everything in life

artjak he's a landlord that likes to keep properties as nest eggs and won't be selling for the forseeable future, but that was what our current landlord was like, he'd rented for years and years, and then bam market in our area takes an upward turn and he is selling. Needs must! It'd be a year tenancy with this new place, with a 6 month break should either party not be happy, I'd like to stay in more than one place for a year I must admit!
