Do we have to uproot the tubars in harsh winter weather?



You haven't said which plant you're asking about, Guest, so I'll assume that you mean Dahlias.

It depends on where you are in the UK, but some people do dig up the tubers and after drying them off, shake off the loose soil and store then in dry compost or sawdust until the spring.

Other people mulch over the top and leave them in the ground. That can be risky if the ground freezes.
