Dahlia Classes
Yes, you can grow beautiful dahlias. We’ll teach you how.

MIDS provides excellent classes for beginning dahlia growers. Classes are held at 7 P.M., prior to each of our meetings. The classes are called Dahlias 101. Tom Cleere, award winning dahlia grower, conducts these sessions. At each class he teaches whatever is relevant to dahlia growing during that month.
