Here at Justdahlias we run small group workshops at various times throughout the year on all aspects of growing and caring for dahlias including tips on cutting, conditioning and arranging the flowers.

 

Dates for 2019 now here – see list below


Private Workshops

If you want to grow dahlias for a special occasion, or have specific growing or caring questions you need help with, private workshops can be arranged at any time of year either on a one-to-one basis or for small groups.  Philippa can advise you on the best varieties for you and where to get them as well as all the growing and after care information you will need.
