Dahlias and Winter

Anonymous added on September 23, 2011 | Answered

What should I do with my dahlias before winter? I live in the Pittsburgh area of PA. I planted them from seed and I've never seen plants explode in growth like them. I really love them but don't want to dig them up. Should I cut them down? If so, to what height?
