Note that we have moved the starting time of our
meetings to
7:00 PM
Dates to

May 14th Meeting: Gordon will discuss
“Planting, Staking and Tying.”  He will remind us
about the importance of slug control and there will be
a fertilizer discussion.  A tuber and plant silent
auction will be part of the evening also.  Since extra
tables are needed for the silent auction, Teresa
could use a volunteer or two to set up tables at
about 6 pm.  In March, we ran out of time to talk
much about starting dahlia seeds so this will be
touched upon.  If you have spare dahlia seed you
are willing to donate to the chapter, please bring it to
the meeting so newer members can try growing
seedlings.  Vice President Gordon asks that careful
evaluation of your soil moisture be made before
planting tubers or young dahlia plants in order to

avoid compaction.  It may be a bit wet still in many of
our gardens.
