Today's Topic:

Yesterday I dug up all 54 of my dahlia tubers for winter storage and find most infected with small white scabs. Could it be the "Moodoo" fertile we used last spring? My husband tells me potato farmers will not use organic manure to fertilize as it will cause scabs. Should I store tubers and plant next spring? The flowers were beautiful this year. Attached is pictures. Thank you.
