Dahlia info after storm
I live on the coast of North Carolina. Just been through 2 late season hurricanes and my Dahlias were ripped and torn. I cut them back to about 6-7 inches, just where they were broken by the winds. Now, some are leafing out again. Can these by dug up to winder over in my garage, or should I wait until it is colder? Our winters are so mild, I usually just leave them alone. Thanks in advance for you kind interest! Peggy

If you generally leave in the ground in your garden, you can leave them.
If you want to dig up, I would wait until it gets colder or the foliage gets touched by the cold.
