If I would have known that storing dahlias would be this easy I could have saved time.  Who would have guest that getting lazy would lead to success when it came to growing more flowers.  In this video below I share my story from the dome greenhouse.  The dahlia tubers are coming out of storage and being potted up for season 2022.  Check out the vlog below and scroll down to ask questi

The first year I was able to winter over tubers was in 2011.  The long process of digging, cleaning and storing in wood chips not to mention the challenge of keeping the storage conditions just right.  With just a few simple steps I outline below you can easily store tubers to grow beautiful dahlia cut flowers for many years.  Below are a few of the important tips and tricks I used this season:

  1. dig up dahlia tubers from garden and shake excess soil off.
  2. Let dahlia tuber sit to dry for about 2 days.
  3. Mix perlite, vermiculate and or wood shavings in a bag.
  4. Store the dahlia out of direct sunlight in the bag filled with dry mix.
  5. The tubers in bag should remain dry and stored at temperatures of 45*F – 65*F.

Keep in mind this storage is only for the winter months.  The Dahlia should be removed from storage before the temperatures reach high 70*F.

  1. Hi Bren! I love your video on dahlias. I bought some tubers about 3 years ago and planted them. I bought them off clearance because I had never grown them before. They were so pretty. So far they have made it through two winters. I love that they grow bigger every year. I can’t wait to get them out in the ground so they can grow.

    1. Hey Rita – thank you for stopping by and sharing on my blog today. I appreciate that you took the time. There are many new varieties on the market today and I had to resist because I have a huge collection at home right now. I would love to hear more about the colors and varieties you have. Maybe we can swap some varieties someday. Please keep in touch. I’ll share more of mine as they grow. I also need to get some photos on my website from last years Dahlia flowers. Happy Spring Friend!
