Jessie King facilitated a hands on workshop on how to cut and save your Dahlia tubers. It was fun and fascinating – a few deaths occurred as we learned to find ‘eyes’ and cut up the right bits. We all walked away with new kinds of dahlias for next spring. Now we just need to get them safely through the winter.
Watch for the Dahlia workshop in Feb on how to pot and start the tubers. We’ll have some for you to get in the dance even if you didn’t join in this fall.

This is an informal and practical discussion on Dahlia’s – the most beautiful and diverse of autumns flowers. Come learn how to grow them, save and store tubers, share some and get some new ones for your next spring’s planting. Learn from dahlia lovers and share some thoughts of your own.
Jessie Caza (King) and Pat Roome and their dance partners will teach you all about dividing tubers to increase your quantities, storing your dahlias over winter, and starting them in the spring.
Arrive empty handed or dig up your own dahlia tubers and bring them along (you may have friends with dahlias who just let them freeze in their gardens and die – they’d be happy to give them to you if you asked to save them). You’ll learn how to identify the parts of the dahlias, how to cut them, label them, how to let them cure and then store them over winter.
This session includes swapping/giving of tubers & tango’ing (socializing) – please bring an image of your dahlia(s) in bloom to show others. Participants who arrived without dahlias may be able to buy tubers from other gardeners.
