Dinnerplate Dahlias

For Mother’s Day Scott gave me some dahlia tubers which were aptly named dinner plate dahlias. Since our pesky groundhog has returned and was ravenously eating it’s leaves and knocking over the stocks I had to cut the flowers and bring them in before it was completely destroyed. Check out the size of these blooms!

I’m going to try and save these tubers over the winter.  Any tips?
