Join MCBG Nursery Manager, Lyn Anton, and learn to divide dahlias before they begin to sprout. Lyn will discuss dahlia anatomy and the different types of dahlias before diving into the art of dahlia division.

The class will wrap up with tips on storing tubers, tricks for overwintering, and a discussion on how to grow dahlias.
