Virginia Dahlia Festival Coming Up

by staff on September 14, 2013

Virginia Dahlia FestivalAre you a fan of dahlias?  Are you a fan of Irish folk music or BBQ?   If so, lucky you.

Next week (on September 21-22), the Virginia Dahlia Festival will take place at Wollam Gardens in Jeffersonton VA.   For those not familiar with Virginia, it’s located between Culpeper and Warrenton.

They say you’ll be able to enjoy over 11 acres of flowers, including over 7000 dahlias.  There’s also food and fun, so check out the link.

For those who believe that dahlias do not grow well in Virginia’s climate… here’s evidence to the contrary.  You can learn how others are successfully raising dahlias in VA.   Dahlias form large tubers in the ground when they grow, and those tubers should be removed and given special care over the winter.
