I sadly lost my husband six years ago - he loved his garden - but I have decided to move to be nearer my family

I would Ann I have actually dug out a dahlia today that I have given up on it may still flower if it has buds but it will be quite late and personally I would rather see my dahlia, I cut a few branches of a cosmos off just to see one of dahlias, maybe see of that works 👍😆

Ann i always put spring wallflowers in place of where dahlias were, then they start to go over in time to put your dahlias back in 👍 turn yr dahlias up side down to dry out in case there's any water in stems so it doesn't soak back in tubers then I brush the soil off with a soft brush wrap in paper and put in cardboard box somewhere dry to store for next year 👍😄
