Happy garden dahlias

Mostly cloudy today but we were fortunate to have a sunny spells. It clouded over more towards teatime with some light rain in the evening.

I lifted our garden dahlias in this afternoon. They were all varieties from the “Happy” collection although I’m not at all sure they were very happy at all in this summers dry conditions.
All summer planted out in the garden they haven’t managed to make much more than a decent sized pot plant in size. A couple of the dahlias had made some tubers which were on the rather small size.
This particular root didn't look to have any tubers at all to store over winter. Our next decision is how to  keep these plants and tubers over winter.
