What to store Dhalia Tubers in?
Hi, I grew Dahlias first time in 2022 and they were great! Just lifted them (they are quadruple the size now), washed most of the soil off and removed any soft/rotting pieces. I don't want to use compost but I have read that paper/newspaper can dry them out too much? One site suggested vermiculite (too expensive!) or sawdust which I don't have. Would newspaper work OK and if not any other easily accessible/cheap alternatives? Do I have to remove ALL the soil? And finally would they be better in a dark garage or my Solar Potting shed which tends to feel a bit damp in this weather? Much appreciated!
