items that would have been mentioned at the next VDS meeting
Planting your Dahlias … by Cathy Featherby
– CHOOSE AN AREA WITH AT LEAST 6 HOURS OF SUNLIGHT
–DAHLIAS WILL GROW WHEN THE SOIL REACHES 50 DEGREES,
MID APRIL TO MID MAY
–BE SURE YOUR SOIL IS NOT TOO WET OR TUBERS CAN ROT
PREPARE YOUR GARDEN PLOT OR AREA
– REMOVE WEEDS AND TILL, TURN YOUR SOIL OVER BY HAND, OR PREPARE IN YOUR USUAL MANOR.
–ADD COMPOST, MANURE OR WHATEVER YOU USUALLY USE TO ENHANCE YOUR SOIL.
–PREPARE A LIST OF YOUR DAHLIAS AND WHERE YOU WANT TO PLANT THEM
DIG YOUR HOLE 10 TO 12 INCHES DEEP AND PUT WHATEVER WORKS FOR YOU INTO THE BOTTOM, OR NOTHING.
EG: BONE MEAL or MANURE
