Join flower farmer and florist Georgie Newbery as she takes you through her dahlia growing and harvesting year.
Dahlias are enormously popular as both gorgeous border plants and cut flowers. Georgie has spent years refining her dahlia growing systems so that she can produce a spectacular crop without onerous amounts of work.
In this workshop Georgie describes the five steps she takes each year to ensure her dahlias give her exactly the wow factor she needs as a flower farmer, from high summer to the first frosts. A keen rationaliser of works, Georgie’s system will not take too much of your time but will give you flowers the envy of your neighbours.
This workshop is ideal for both the hobby grower and flower farmer and includes information on why or not you might lift your dahlias, the different ways you can store, how to mulch, various whys and wherefores of dahlia propagation, growing on, planting out, feeding, watering and harvest. Georgie finishes with top tips for conditioning and arranging your dahlias for wow factor and good vase life.
A member of the RHS Dahlia Trials Committee Georgie is a keen dahlia enthusiast as well as an expert grower.
