Have you ever wondered how to win prizes for your dahlias? Or how to choose the best flower in your garden? This evening is for you. The crew at the Society will show you what to look for when choosing the best flower for competition. Then they will show you how to "stage" the flower in the vase so as to impress the flower show judges.
We will also teach anyone interested in how to assist at the flower show and how to document show results.
Come spend some fun time with some really fun gardeners. As usual we are at the Royal Botanical Gardens
First we will visit 2 members' gardens:
82 Clifton Downs Road Hamilton from 2-3 pm
99 Ferrie Street West Hamilton 3-4 pm
Naturally these times are all very flexible. Come and go at your leisure.
All the gardens are fairly close to each other.
Then we go to the Macassa Bay Yacht club for potluck any time after 4pm.
80 Harbour Front Drive
Come on out and learn how to prune those dahlias. These plants grow like weeds and need some tender loving care so they do not get too big and topple over or split in half. The flowers are bigger and better formed if you prune intelligently. A demonstration is worth a thousand words. And it is fun to spend a few hours with happy gardeners in a happy garden.
