Answer: Hi Liz
Dahlias are a great plant to have in the garden. Once they have finished flowering just cut off the flowers and let the plant do its thing until it dies down. Then if your ground doesn’t get frozen or waterlogged over winter you can leave them in the ground over winter, but if it does get frozen or waterlogged then you will have to lift the bulb to store over winter and plant back out in spring.
