We are happy to report that it was a huge success!  In fact, we only have miscellaneous tubers left so we are going to cancel the sale dates of May 5th and 12th.

Thanks to Megan Badger as always for all she does,  everyone else that helped and to all the members that so generously donated their tubers for our annual sale.

February 15, 2012 Meeting

“Drip Irrigation in Landscaping & Containers”

Our speaker  for our February 15, 2012 meeting was  Kathlyn Collins, owner of The Gardening Coach, which specializes in irrigation systems.  Her company website,, states that since 2001, Kathlyn has been helping gardeners find practical and creative solutions for their landscapes and gardens.  She also helps to take the “overwhelm” out of selecting and installing a drip system. During her presentation she taught us  that installing and maintaining a drip irrigation system is easy, economical and very do-able. 

Everyone enjoyed Kathlyn's presentation and the delicious snacks.   Another great meeting!!!

Fall Banquet and Awards Presentations

Our Fall Banquet was held on October 19, 2011 and was a perfect time to award the trophies from our annual show.
It was a great way to end our dahlia season visiting with friends and enjoying Meirer's chicken along with the delicious food that everyone contributed. 
It was another great year for Dahlias in the Salt Lake area.  We got off to a rough start with our cold and very wet spring but our dahlias exceeded our expectations.
Thanks to Megan Badger once again for all she does and all our members for making us one of the most successful garden clubs in Utah.

Maxine Clark is presented her trophy by Nick Spencer.

Nick Spencer won People's Choice Award.  Mark Hurst presented him with his trophy.
