Dividing dahlias: where do I start??
Learning to divide your dahlia tubers can feel overwhelming when you’re first getting started, so we’ve made a quick video to show you our process. In this first video I walk you through what to look for when you’re getting started. There are a few key things that really help to know when you’re ready to start dividing your dahlia clumps.
To create a healthy new plant next year each tuber must have the following:
A viable eye
A strong neck that connects to the crown of the tuber
Enough energy stored in the tuber to get the growing process started next spring
In the video I do my best to show you where and how you can find the eyes on a tuber clump. I have also included a few photos below that point out the eyes on tubers that are just coming out of winter storage.
If you have any questions please feel free to leave them below in the comments and we’ll answer them as best as we can.
