Sprouting Dahlia Tubers
Can anyone offer advice? I started my Dahlia tubers (some grown from seed last year and some bought as tubers this year) into growth last month and I'm going to try and take some cuttings from the stubby shoots. However my three Arabian Night tubers have put on too much leggy growth, up to 16 inches, Should I cut these tall shoots off? If I do can I use the tips to propergate as I would shorter sprouts? Finally should I be cutting sprouts off with a small part of the tuber attached as some web sites suggest or will that stop the tuber forming new sprouts from the eye. Many thanks.
