Spence's Garden

One of my favorite gardens in this area belongs to 
Spence and Emily. 
 He was a founding member of the Utah Dahlia Society and is our ADS Representative.

 His garden includes hundreds of dahlias that greet you as you drive toward the house.
 There are dahlia beds tucked away in delightful places.
 A spot for his special dahlias that receive extra care.
 Another garden borders the tennis court.
 Spence has too many dahlias to stake so he uses a string method that does a good job.
 He also grows berries, corn....
 canna lilies and much more.
Thanks to Spence & Emily for their generosity to many of us that have been gifted their lovely dahlias.  Also for the dahlias and tubers that have been donated each year to the UDS fundraisers.
The Utah Dahlia Society's annual Exhibition Show is coming up on September 28th and 29th.
It is being held at the Sugarhouse Garden Center as usual.
We hope to see you there!
