October is the month to start thinking about storing your dahlia tubers over winter! Our club’s preferred practice is splitting and storing. If you do not already have a tried-and-true method, please come to one of our info sessions on tuber splitting and storage!! Info sessions are free and open to the public! All you need is to attend!
If you are new to growing dahlias these info sessions are really informative and valuable! Some of the topics we will be discussing:
– How to look for eyes on your tuber clump(s)
– The best way to divide them
– A few different storage techniques that work well.
For those with questions, experienced club members will be available to answer questions about splitting and winter storage.
Choose from one of these times:
Thursday, October 3, 2013 – 2800 Blanshard St. at the Wellesley. General Victoria Dahlia Society Meeting starting at 7:30 pm. Program topic: Tuber splitting and storage.
Saturday, October 26, 2013 – at Victoria Dahlia Society President Phil Newton’s house. Time to be determined; but likely late morning-early afternoon. To attend, RSVP to: firstname.lastname@example.org
We really hope to see you there!!
