dahlia tubers in baskets on the ground

Dahlia Tubers Workshop – Sunday, September 29, 2019

Well, our September 14 workshop sold out so quickly we decided to add another one!

Learn how to dig, divide, store and plant your dahlia tubers on our bee-friendly and sustainable micro flower farm.

The afternoon will begin with a hot drink and introductions by the outdoor fire. Then you will be shown how to dig and divide, learning about where the “eyes” are so you can get the most tubers possible out of each clump.

Afternoon tea will be offered with freshly baked goodies to keep you warm. During this time there will be a tour of the flower farm and a chance to meet our farm animals.

After your break, you will learn how to store your dahlias and will be given a planting demonstration. The day will end with final questions and a bag of your own dahlia tubers to take home.

What you need to bring:

  • Gloves and sharp cutting utensils. We will provide these to you, but you’re welcome to bring your own!
  • Wet weather clothing (overalls, aprons, etc.), beanies, scarves, and warm closed-toe footwear.

Lyonville can be a cold part of the world, so please remember it may be snowing or raining and we will be working outside, rain or shine. For the best weather forecast, please follow Ballarat.

Workshop fees are non-refundable. A minimum of 7 participants is needed to hold the workshop. Space is limited to 12 participants.

Tickets for this event can be obtained at Eventbrite.
