About this Event
Let’s all help make 2021 a great year for dahlia gardeners, whether we are veteran growers or enthusiastic beginners! We will provide a hands-on demonstration of how to plant and care for your dahlias. Members of the NCW Dahlia Society will talk about which dahlias grow well in this climate, and will show you how to prepare your garden, plant your tubers and tend your plants throughout the growing season. We will talk about soil preparation, selection of the best planting locations and discuss routine maintenance that is common to dahlia growers across the Northwest. We will discuss the different forms and varieties of dahlia, how to interpret dahlia terminology and where to go for additional resources as your season progresses. Tools, accessories, supporting/staking and labeling will be discussed. We will briefly touch on how you can increase your dahlia stock by taking cuttings from your tubers. Bring your questions and ideas.
Everyone in attendance will receive a coupon for a free tuber at our spring tuber sales, tentatively scheduled for April 17 and April 24 at Pybus Public Market. Depending on COVID 19 protocols, dates and location may need to be changed before April, so check our website for the most up-to-date information – www.ncwdahlias.org.
