Planting Dahlia Tubers


Ghostridersfarm added on April 29, 2016 | Answered

Planting dahlia tubers that have been used to harvest starts. This is my first year taking dahlia cuttings. I have gotten all I need, but a lot of the tubers have new growth, not big enough to take cuttings from but green and healthy. Can I plant the tubers like I normally would and, if so, do I need to remove the new growth? Or can I just plant them with the very top leaves exposed to take advantage of the head start? Thanks for your time! Shannon

Go ahead and plant them, the fact that they have new growth ("sprouts") means they're healthy!
