We enjoy breeding new dahlias!
My record for tubers from one clump(a first year clump not one of those multi year monsters) was an Amy K plant that produced 42 tubers. There are two things that should be said about this: (1) Amy K makes lots of SMALL tubers (2) I used tis plant as an experiment for using 20-20-20 greenhouse fertilizer weekly to the point the plant turned blue from the blue dye in the liquid fertilizer. The fertilizer caused numerous side shoot to appear from under the soil and they had small tubers attached to them at harvest time. The size of many of the tubers was comparable to a man's pinky finger.
Amy K is a bit late blooming and first flowers are a bit too large for cut flowers but later flushes are very good. Originated by Les Connell. Oldie but goodie.
We like to place a sign on our porch that says: We are in the garden. Really, we are always in the garden.
