September Meeting

The Lane County Dahlia Society will hold its September meeting on Thursday, September 3rd at 7:30 PM at the Celeste Campbell Center, 155 High Street, Eugene. This month's meeting will focus on how to enter a dahlia bloom into a dahlia show. We will discuss how to improve bloom quality on your plants, how to safely transport blooms to the show, and demonstrate how to stage a 1-bloom and 3-bloom entry. Experts will also be on hand to answer any questions related to entering baskets or arrangements as well. We also encourage all members to bring some dahlia blooms for our "show-and-tell". The meeting is free and open to the public. Free refreshments and door prizes will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there!
