Dahlia Intensive at Stone Hollow Farmstead
One-Day Course | Two Dates Available
MARCH 4th 2023 or MARCH 11th 2023
Deborah Stone & Alexandra Stone Flowers of Stone Hollow Farmstead will lead two intensive classes on the art of growing dahlias. There is much to know!
In each day-long course, we’ll cover the art and science of growing gorgeous Dahlias in the hot humid climates east of the Mississippi, where we face a host of disease & insect pressures.
Today, Stone Hollow Farmstead is home to more than 150 varieties of Dahlias grown organically on our sustainable farm.
In this workshop — one designed for home gardeners who want beautiful Dahlias in their gardens, Deborah & Alexandra will cover the basics of tuber selection, planting, care & maintenance, pests & diseases, propagation & cut flowers, & also dive deeper into their methods for healthy growth & beautiful blooms. Classes are held in the propagation greenhouse where you will see two mother boards filled with future dahlia cuttings.
In addition to all the techniques for growing & caring for dahlias, Alexandra will share flower preservation methods along with arrangement & tablescape design.
Why are we doing this in March?
So you will be ready to plant your tubers in April! We are bringing in some of Deborah & Alexandra’s favorite varieties of tubers for our workshop participants!
Each guest will receive 3 tubers of their choice to take home.
We’ll have a few extra tubers on hand for anyone who’d like to purchase more.
All supplies will be included, along with a delicious lunch & refreshments throughout the day. Guests will also each receive a copy of The Stone & Flower bound notebook on Dahlia growing & care.
