Gardening with Dahlias
A long-time NGC member, Betsy is a begonia and dahlia specialist and flower show judge.
Following a brief history of dahlias and their introduction into the American garden, she will show us how to select dahlia tubers, where to plant, and how to water and fertilize. To stake or not to stake, to dig or not to dig – these are the questions!
For those who overwinter tubers, she will also discuss how to store them and how to wake them up.
