Storing Dahlia Tubers
I want to store my Dahlia tubers, which have been growing in the herbaceous borders, indoors over winter in pots. I read that they should be placed in Peat or sand but I'm wondering if I could use Multipurpose Compost instead? My long term plan is to put them back out in a coldframe in March/April before planting back out in the borders as young plants in late May/early June.

Yes, multipurpose will be fine.Watch the moisture levels in the compost. Dry but not dust-dry and they might shrivel and need a soak for a day in winter to plump up.
