« back to classes page

Dahlias are one of the most generous and rewarding flowers in the garden. Join Jill at Cabrillo’s Horticulture Center to learn about the different types of dahlias, how to grow them in the ground or in pots, how to select tubers, how to plant, feed, and care for your dahlias. Jill will cover sustainable pest and disease control, seed saving, companion planting, multiplying your plants through tuber division and cuttings, and advice on breeding. Last but not least, learn the best way to cut and care for dahlias in your home and enjoy these luscious, colorful blooms. The materials fee covers a seed-grown 4” dahlia plant, a booklet with the class materials, and a journal for note-taking.
This is an all-levels workshop and no prior experience is required.
