Re dahlias. I planted some dwarf/mini dahlias in April this year. Can I leave them where they are over the winter or should I lift them and store them for next year? Thanks.



How cold is it likely to get on winter nights where you are, Avril?

Beattie and Kennyboy - I think I will leave them like Kennyboy did and take a chance. I don't fancy lifting them so I will cover them with leaves as extra protection. Our winters here in Brussels aren't too cold but you never can tell. Thanks to you both.
