Gardenener and longtime Merryspring volunteer will lead a presentation about growing dahlias from seeds and roots on Tuesday, April 2 at noon.
Fromer’s presentation will cover all things dahlias, and will hopefully inspire many to start early in spring for the dahlia garden of their dreams. The talk will cover everything from the different varieties of types of dahlia, starting plants from seed, and disbudding and rooting shoots, to dividing tubers, starting early inside, trans- and direct planting methods, pest management, and more.
John Fromer has been a Maine Master Gardener since 1998 and runs Appleton Ridge Flower and Vegetable Farm with his wife Kathy, also a Maine Master Gardener. They grow flowers, vegetables and herbs in a sustainable and authentic fashion.
