Growing Dahlias for Cut Flowers
Are you new to growing flowers for cutting? or new to flower farming? This is a 3 part live real time workshop focussed totally on growing dahlias and will equip you with the knowledge to enable you to grow bountiful and beautiful blooms for years to come.
We grow over 600 dahlia plants every year for my business, some just for my own flower farm use, some for potted sales and some Kate grows to trial the colour and stem length for our location. Kate’s growing regime allows for the first blooms to be cut as early as mid to end of June onwards and allows for hundreds and hundreds of stems cut for florists, weddings and pick your own events.
This is a 3 part online workshop in real time covering the most important stages of growing dahlias for cutting, from the very first stage of potting up and setting away for cuttings, propagating to growing on and planting out to feeding, maintenance and disbudding to promote stems for cutting.
Each workshop will be 1.5hrs long and may overrun, the dates for each workshop are times accordingly to follow the natural growing season.
