Dig, Divide & Store - Dahlias after Season 

Join Donna Lane, past president of the New England and Rhode Island Dahlia societies, for a hands-on workshop where you will learn when and how to dig your dahlias, how to divide your underground treasures, and the various methods of storing them over the winter months.

Class size is small, preregistration is required. 

Donna Lane has been dabbling in dahlias since 1967. Like many others, she was given a plant by a co-worker and has been hopelessly hooked ever since. She advises people to persist if they have problems over-wintering dahlias. “I was frustrated because I had to buy new tubers each year, but I was determined to find a way to keep them from turning to mush. The way my co-worker stored them didn’t work for me,” she says.

Her garden is a destination for numerous garden clubs during September. “I have a small dahlia patch compared to others in the Society,” Donna says.  “I only have room for about 150 plants, but I keep trying to squeeze in just one more every year.”  Of the 150 plants she grows, she has 120 different varieties.
