Dahlias in Gardener’s World

I was watching Gardener’s World this morning while grinding curry powder for the spring surprise packages, and Monty Don talks about starting dahlias early in pots, putting them on heated mats to encourage growth, and then taking cuttings for division, before planting out in the garden. Does anyone here have any experience with that? Any tips?

I haven’t checked my dahlias from last year, but fingers crossed, they’ve survived and if so, I’d like to try this…it’d be great to have more dahlias to give out in the community.
