2013 Tuber Sale

Congratulations to the Utah Dahlia Society's Members for stepping up and making our 2013 one of our best tuber sales ever.  We were disappointed that many of our tubers from the demo garden had rotted over the winter.   Many of our members dug deep and gave us more than we could of hoped for to supply our sale.
Also, Thank you to Steve, an ADS Board member that came to our aide and sent us tubers from his garden. He also included some that are very special for our demo garden that we are looking forward to growing.

Our members only sale was held on 
Friday, April 19 at the Garden Center 
and the Public Sale followed on
 Saturday, April 20th.

 Steve is always a great help
 along with Mark and Ryan
 Karen and Bill
 Steve and Dee finding the best tubers for their gardens
 The youngest and most beautiful members of our group.  We are excited for the new addition to their family and the Utah Dahlia Society.

Thanks again to Bill for the great photos.

American Dahlia Society

The Utah Dahlia Society was honored to have the American Dahlia Society Board visit Salt Lake City for their annual meeting in April, 2013.
They were very gracious and held a class on April 12th at the Shilo Inn for the UDS members that were interested in judging.  It was very informative and we appreciated the time and effort they put into the class.
The following day on Saturday, April 13 our very own UDS member, Elizabeth shared lovely accommodations at
 City Creek Commons for a BBQ dinner
 catered by Joe Morely BBQ
 for the UDS to welcome and pay tribute to the ADS.
It was a great time to get to know one another and learn many tips for making a successful Society.

Thank you to Elizabeth and Bill for the photos.  
And as always, thanks to Megan for her efforts.
