Q.What To Do With Many Stems Come Up From Same Tuber?

Zone 94558 | cmkirmse@gmail.com added on April 19, 2020 | Answered

My dahlias are coming through soil but some rather than having one stem, have many stems coming up from the same tuber. I assume this is because there were more than one eye on the tuber. Should I get rid of extra stems, and if so, how? Or should I just let them grow as well?

Let them grow this year, since they are already growing. During dormancy, it may be a good idea to divide them up for next year!
