Big problem with dahlias
Basically, I have a dahlia collection. Probably about 150 or so of them. And I never had this, I should say, huge problem with tubers. a few days back I dug out my tubers and cleaned them under running water, so the tubers would be shiny clean. I do this every year. However, this year I cleaned them, and let them dry over 3 days period. Then I put them away as every year before, into bathtub in my basement, and then cover them with dry peat moss. And I can't believe my eyes - all of the tubers are starting to sprout!!! I don't know what to do, I just saw that all of them started growing shoots from the dormant eyes! I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO! I am scared that I can loose my collection! What should I do?!?! please, help somebody! I am so scared, I think I did a big mistake by using warm water to wash them and somehow managed to awake the dormant eyes! Please, HELP!
