The Dahlias Are Done!

Today I finished wrapping and cataloging the last of my dahlia tubers of 2013!

I ended up with four completely full copy paper boxes of tubers. From 242 clumps that I dug, I ended up storing 1,084 tubers this year. Of those 1,084 tuber I know for sure that 800 of them have live eyes. In the Spring I will earn if the other 284 are viable or not.

As I was taking my final inventory and pictures, Padma arrived. He gave the boxes one more inspection before they were stored away in the cold garden room for the next four months. Now that this huge project is complete, both the tubers and the gardener can rest for the Winter. And I can also start shopping for next year's new varieties guilt free!
