Well....I`m not messing about with my dahlias any more - they will be taking pot luck in the ground, and I might chuck a little extra mushroom compost over them.....and I hope the mice starve...mumble mumble 

Hedgehog, not rat-friendly garden

That`s a jolly good point too Onopordum,  I actually stopped feeding birds near the house.  I`m fortunate to have a lot of ground, and now the bird feeding station is as far away from the house as possible, and near the hedge where the garden meets the farm fields.

The rat traps need re-fueling every day.  It can take a while to have full effect.  Are the rats taking the poison?  My advice is to persevere and be diligently patient.

The problem needs to be sorted if the rats are close to home as they breed every few days and are a health threat, and as long as the right traps or pipes are used the hogs should be ok.  Keep a watch out for bodies, and destroy them asap.

Been there - done that

Failing that, chop off the top growth and sort out the root with a stump grinder.

Here in the south east, my dahlias were fine left in the ground for years.  One year I carefully dug them up to store in the garage.......and mice ate the lot
