I "cover everything" except the stems.  Never lost a dahlia yet and grow them large even in comtainers.

but, yes, agree that there is no one "correct" way.

Hmmmm!  No feast for the eyes for at least 2 years and prob more   bugle naturally spreads fast rooting everywhere it touches.  Not grown it for several years now but still get small pieces persisting .   This is an example where a 3 litre pot can be purchased and divided into scores of plants ..........!!!

Whats best for screening a warehouse - upto 5-6m. Please see images.

You need to consider you may have q problem there if you overplant with over vigorous trees.

Amistad is a perennial and pretty hardy in most places.

Stems above the soil level ...only the tubers covered with compost.  The top of the clump of tubers just below the soil and the rest of the tubers as deep as they go.

I assume you have potted up and not planted outside in fhe garden
