    Figure it may be a little late now, but anyone here grow dahlias and have some spare tubers you want to trade? I have a few left I can swap, including Peach Frills(Cameo Peach is very similar), Happy Face, Lemon Meringue and a few others. I'd need to go through them to see exactly what I have, but I'm open to almost any kind. I only have 10-15 different ones, so there are many I don't have. I'll have tubers this spring from all of the different varieties I grow, named and unknowns.

    Not hard, very easy in fact. Plant 6 inches sideways and you are done. Rather a mixture of sandy soil and manure or other organic matter.
