New dahlia

I have just treated myself to a small gallery dahlia. I have the perfect spot for it in the bed however, I'm trying to decide if it's worth putting it in yet, or keeping it potted until spring. Any help??

    Definitely keep it in a pot, dahlias are not hardy, it will need to go somewhere frost free  and dry after the first frost.

    Do not plant it out permantly-you could put into position but leave in the pot-then bring inside after the first frost

  • Thanks both!
