I think this may have been asked before, if so, I apologise...

I've dug up many of my dahlias, and am not sure I'm going to want to plant them all next year. Can I keep them dry and dormant for more than a season? Or will they just rot, or otherwise give up the ghost?

    They will start to grow and then will die unless planted.
    Did they tear it out with talons of steel
    And give you a shot, so that you wouldn't feel?
    And washed it away as if it wasn't real?

    offer them on freecycle, problem solved and you'll make someone happy too.

    Have you any friends or neighbours who might like them @Janie B?

    Otherwise, @Hostafan1's idea is a great one. 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Thanks! I’ll plant them up next spring, and can offload them once I’ve decided which ones I want!
