    Hi all,

    I am new to the whole gardening and growing side of life! However I have what is becoming an unhealthy obsession with Dahlias by one of them has this pink tuber like growth growing on them at the root.

    Has anyone seen this and have any idea on what and how to cure it if there’s a cure?

    Thanks in advance.

    @Darren2993
    That always seems to be the way, unfortunately. I don't think I would risk it the chance of spreading it would be too high. Dahlias are not that expensive to get new plants of and if you want several then have a look at Dahlia Flower Plants and Tubers | Woolmans or Home - Halls of Heddon or National Dahlia Collection | Finest Collection of Dahlias in the UK & Europe orders are now being taken for rooted cuttings for 2020.
