2021 Dahlias

In 2021 we introduced our first dahlia project. We ordered tubers from a variety of dahlia growers and sprouted and planted 40 dahlia tubers. The result was incredible beauty and lots of lessons!

What we learned

  • how important it is to stake the plants
  • how easy it is for scratching hens to dig down to the tuber level
  • the noticeable difference a pile of compost makes to the plant
  • and the amazing production of bloom after bloom in August, September and October!

See our success

It was a great season!
