We are thrilled to be able to offer our dahlia tuber workshop again; however, this time you get to go home with a collection of different tubers for your own garden! Each person will dig and divide a clump of a different dahlia variety and then have the opportunity to share those tubers that you have divided with others in the workshop. While learning everything you need to know about dahlias and meeting other dahlia lovers, we will have hot drinks to keep us warm and Chris’ famous pumpkin pie and other goodies to keep us going.
Chris and Janae will explain everything you need to know to grow your own healthy dahlia patch from the beginning, right through to planting and caring for your blooms. We will start by explaining how to dig the dahlias, wash them down, understand where to look for the “eye,” divide the dahlia tubers, and which tools we like to use. We’ll also talk about storing the dahlias so that they stay healthy through winter, when to plant your dahlia tubers for your climate, how we plant them, what we feed our dahlias for healthy blooms, explain what “pinching out” means and why we do it, and finally how to enjoy your dahlias in your home.
Finally, we will end the workshop with a tour around our working flower farm and for you to ask as many questions as you like along the way. Chris and I are now in our 6th growing season and we grow over 50 varieties of flowers on our farm.
Please note that this will be an outdoor event and you may get a little muddy. Please wear waterproof and warm clothing.
We limit this workshop to 15 participants — so book early to avoid being disappointed!
