Dahlia Division & Care

Saturday, February 4, 2023
from 10:00am to 12:00pm
in the Propagation House at Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens

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. You’ll get your hands dirty dividing tubers and take one home to practice all you have learned. The class will wrap up with tips on storing tubers, tricks for overwintering, and a discussion on how to grow dahlias.
