Many thanks to all who purchased tubers at the Genesis Walkway in Kennett Square and at Longwood Gardens. The members of The Greater Philadelphia Dahlia Society had a successful growing and storage year, resulting in a particularly nice selection of tubers for sale. Thanks to all who donated their tubers and worked at the sale. We hope that all who purchased tubers have good luck; don't forget to consult your Growing Dahlias brochure for advice and information. Perhaps some of you will display them at our show in September!
All are welcome to join our dahlia society; our membership fee is very reasonable and entitles you to the quarterly newsletter and our four annual meetings.
Details and the membership form are available under the About tab, then GPDS membership, above.
The Greater Philadelphia Dahlia Society was founded in 1948 for the purpose of promoting the dahlia in its many forms and varieties. An annual Dahlia Show is held in September. Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, is kind enough to allow us to use their beautiful facility as a backdrop for the fruits of our labor. Anyone interested in growing dahlias is invited to participate in the Society.
