Sorry Bilje for not thanking you on your response the website gremlins lost my posts and I could not find the thread until today.
Half my dahlias are up and drying off in the kitchen. They came up quite cleanly this year so I havnt washed them , as they have dried off I have just rubbed off the loose dirt and returned the worms to the garden.. All the green leafed dahlias have been frosted this week so they have been lifted. The dark leaved bishops are still ok so they will get dug up next week after this cold snap they are promising this week.
The garden is still looking colourful though. The roses, gerainiums and marigolds are having a last blast. the weather is a big chilly here today so I have just started digging out the horses muckheap ready to mulch the garden . Amazing the amount of heat that comes out of the pile.
