Everything you need to know to grow gorgeous Dahlias!

Over the past 15 years growing dahlias I have made all the mistakes. But each season I have refined my techniques and practises and and now these beauties are my main crop. 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 disbud 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.

Bring your tubers or pick up the ones you have ordered from me. 

Tubers will also be available for purchase. 

*If you haven't divided your tubers bring them and I will demonstrate exactly what to do.

Tubers will be available for purchase.

Saturday, April 28th, from 2-4 pm in my garden in Parkdale. 

Maximum 16 participants
