Yes, you CAN grow dahlias in Florida! Join Eileen of FarmGal Flowers for this dahlia intensive. Eileen will share her secrets for growing these beautiful flowers in the Florida sun. Students will learn:
• when and how to plant tubers
• how to maintain and stake dahlias
• which varieties grow best here
• how to harvest blooms and extend vase life
• how to dig, divide, and store tubers
Eileen will answer all of your dahlia questions and share tubers with you! Students will also be invited to join the FarmGal Flowers Dahlia Intensive Facebook group.
This workshop will be held socially distanced, outdoors in the East End Market garden. Students will be notified as soon as possible if the workshop needs to be rescheduled due to inclement weather. This workshop will be limited in capacity as we will be practicing COVID-19 safety protocols including wearing masks. Please also bring gardening gloves (if you would like to handle tubers), pen, notebook, hat, water, etc. Questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org .
