You can also buy packet seeds, and then you will have the tubers for next year. and the seeds are cheaper than buying tubers. 8)

Unfortunately the seed raised ones are usually annuals and don't make tubers to store.  Very easy from seed and a great way to grow lots of summer colour cheaply though  :)

That is another option. Thank you! :)

I grew a mix called Bishop's Children a few years back.  They are dark leaved plants with rich deep flower colours.  Would recommend them  :)

Newshoot, about half of the Bishop's Children I sowed for my daughter, grew tubers - didn't yours?

Most grew small tubers, but a lot withered away over winter and the remaining ones didn't sprout when I replanted them next spring  :(   Maybe I was unlucky, but the proper tuberous dahlias I had overwintered fine and they were all treated the same.

I just potted them up and slung them in the childrens playhouse, perhaps they didn't dry out as much  :unsure:

All my seeded dahlias always produced tubers - it's how they grow. And, they all grew again next year when replanted. It could be how you're storing them overwinter that is giving trouble.
