Everything you need to know to grow gorgeous Dahlias!

Over the past 16 years growing dahlias I have made all the mistakes. Each season I have refined my techniques and deepened my understanding of what these beauties need to flourish and now dahlias are my main crop and receive the most praise of all of the flowers. Join me to learn how to confidently, organically grow and overwinter these queens of the late summer garden.  

We will cover:

  • Potting up your tubers to start indoors for a longer bloom season (doesn't require a lot of space or grow lights)

  • How to prepare your beds for planting

  • Best conditions for growing

  • Fertilizing

  • Staking

  • Watering

  • Controlling pests and powdery mildew

  • How to dis bud for larger blooms

  • Best harvesting practices

  • And perhaps the trickiest part, how to dig, divide and store tubers over winter. 

All materials for potting up will be provided. 

You will receive a 6 page handout of instructions and advice to refer to throughout the season.

Tubers will be available for purchase. You may also bring your own.

*If you haven't divided your tubers from last season bring them and I will demonstrate exactly what to do!

Saturday, April 20th, from 2-4 pm in my garden in Parkdale. 

Maximum 12 participants
