dahlia tubers

Zone Lodi, CA | alncarolyn added on April 2, 2018 | Answered

I dug up and stored my dahlia tubers over the winter in a cardboard box with newspaper for add'l protection. They did not rot and are firm. However they have no "eyes". Should I put them in the ground & hope for the best? Also, should I divide them (even tho I don't see any eyes) or leave them just as is?

If they are, relatively, young and you do not see any eyes, then I would recommend planting it as one just to be safe. Then, next year you may divide them up.
