Discovering Dahlias Workshop with Julie Hall
We're so happy to welcome back flower farmer, Julie Hall, from Maple Bloom Flower Farm as she teaches all about Dahlias!
Dahlias are the cut flower queens of the late summer and fall! They come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors and add so much beauty to a garden and joy to your life. But they can be tricky to grow in Utah.
With a little extra knowledge you can have a much more successful growing experience. Come learn the basics of growing, harvesting and storing dahlias.
DATE: Saturday, April 13th
TIME: 10:00 - 11:30am
