Staging and Clerking Night

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

Pruning demonstration

Pruning demonstration

  • 152 Davidson Boulevard Dundas, ON, L9H 7N6 Canada (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

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.

Our famous tuber auction

Come and buy tubers of gorgeous varieties unavailable in the garden nurseries.  Everyone in the HDCDS donates their excess tubers to the auction.  This results in a fabulous selection of varieties of dahlias available.

For those donating tubers please come at 6:30 so we can sort out the tubers.

Doors open at 6:30.

There will be no break as in previous years as we never finish!

There will be home made goodies and hot drinks available throughout the evening courtesy of our wonderful hospitality volunteer.
