Emma, dahlias have suffered very badly this year.....the worst ever.
My method is to pick slugs etc off at night. If I,havent,really got the time I will simply visit the dahlias only....as I,did last night.
I cut off damaged stems, leaves amd spent flowers and new growth soon follows. Agree that tubers are more likely to recover.
