Dahlias - do they all have tubers?

Posted: 27/09/2013 at 19:39

If I was to guess, I would say they form roots and then, when ready, form tubers.  The natural habit of with some tender to, eventually, form tubers.

Look, it's hard to be inventive when my lovely old dog's resting his head on my knee pleading for a walk. 

Dahlias - do they all have tubers?

This is an interesting question.  I think they all do form tubers after a season's growth but, although I grow several dahlias, I do not know for sure.  Every dahlia for me has formed tubers.

Dahlias are tender perennials ..  Or, ..are some simply annuals?

Look forward to seeing gardeners world....usually record it though to watch later.  Beechgrove last night was  so relaxing.  Enjoyed it but, again, nothing to inspire, challenge or excite. 

Toby Buckland, for me, is excellent and would like to see him or Andy Sturgeon presenting a programme about plants.  The two,together would be brilliant.  Gardeners question time on the radio is good but rarely have time to listen or I forget.

Not really ideal to cut them down in autumn.  Spring is advisable.
