Spring means Dahlia Tuber Sales to members of the
American Dahlia Society.
The Utah Chapter
joined in the fun with our
second annual Tuber Sale
hosted by
Millcreek Gardens.
Our President, Mark Hurst offered these lovely cuttings and seedlings.
We kicked off our Tuber Sale with a tuber party for members. It was a chance to have some fun, bag our tubers and get first pick of the many tubers donated for sale.
Cutting tubers......
the next step was to write the names on the tubers and then off to the next station......
to be bagged in vermiculite with a label including a picture and classification on the bag.
Don't forget to punch the air hole!

We all worked up an appetite and enjoyed a pizza buffet with all the trimmings.
A two hour drive each way to help out and bring tubers by our Logan members was much appreciated.

Mark does a book signing for his Dahlia Diary surrounded by
Eva Jensen, Megan Badger and Karen Crook.
Our 2010 Tuber Sale on April 24th was greeted by perfect weather and interest from new and more experienced growers alike.

Many thanks once again to Millcreek Gardens for hosting our sale and to the many members and growers that donated tubers.
We have some great tubers left and will be back to
Millcreek Gardens
again next
Saturday, May 1st at 10:00.
