The Midwest Dahlia Conference, in conjunction with the Elkhart Dahlia Society and the Bonneville Trial Garden, is pleased to announce a Dahlia Judging Seminar.
Starting around 9 or 10 AM in the morning, groups of dahlia growers will discuss the fine points of judging a dahlia correctly. This is an excellent time for new members to come and participate. By judging dahlias, discussions will center around how to grow the dahlias, trim them properly, and diagnose any problems that might be occurring. Experienced growers are always pleased to assist new growers in the groups.
We will have lunch in an air conditioned one room school house. Since this is a pot luck event, please bring a salad or dessert to pass. The local Elkhart members will bring the meat and Indiana corn on the cob.
If you are new to dahlia growing, please don't feel intimidated. This is a wonderful way to learn about growing our favorite flower. Please let new members of your club know about this opportunity, as we are seeking new growers especially.
