September Meeting

The Lane County Dahlia Society will hold its September meeting on Thursday, September 6th 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. We will also have a demonstration on how to float a dahlia bloom and will hear how to gather all of the materials that you will need. We will have the new Show Books to distribute and will give a quick talk on how to read the Show Book and understand it. Limited amounts of show cans will be for sale. 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!
